This is the official guide book to A Century of 
Progress International Exposition in 1934, the 
World's Fair at Chicago. It contains the fullest and 
most accurate information possible for the purpose 
of directing our visitors how to find everything in 
the Exposition and how to make use of the Exposi- 
tion's facilities for their comfort and convenience. 

In preparing this official guide book we have had in 
mind, first: the making of a guide that would be 
most useful to the visitor at the Exposition, and 
second: a record and summary that would be most 
useful to the visitor afterward, as a souvenir and 
as an aid to classifying his recollections of what he 
has seen at the Fair. 

Many important additions have been made to the 
Exposition this year. With these the scientific back- 
ground has been retained, with numerous improve- 
ments in operation. Every possible improvement 
which a year's experience could suggest for the 
comfort and enjoyment of our visitors has been 
put into effect. The Exposition is before you and 
we bid you "welcome. 






THERE are twelve entrances to the Exposition, including three 
pier landings. The land entrances are: North Entrance (12th 
Street), 14th, 16th, 18th, 23rd, 27th, 31st, 35th Streets, and South 
(Farm) Entrance. 

By automobile or taxi you may drive to any of the land entrances 
through Grant Park or by the South Shore Drive. Privately oper- 
ated parking space is available adjacent to the entrances, or within 
a short distance, except at the North and 14th Street entrances. A 
large public parking area (small charge) is at Monroe Street in 
Grant Park within ten minutes bus ride of the North Entrance. 
A Chicago Motor Bus system (free transfers) reaches all entrances. 
A Street cars (free transfers) direct to 14th, 18th and 23rd Street 
entrances and close to 31st and 35th Street entrances. 
A South Side Elevated Railroad (free transfers from other elevated 
lines) crosses street car lines (no transfers to street cars) at Roose- 
velt Road (12th Street), Cermak Road (22nd Street) where you may 
take street cars direct to grounds. You may leave the Elevated at 3 1st 
or 35th Street and take street cars to within a short walk of gates. 
A Illinois Central Railroad runs beside the Exposition grounds with 
local stations at 12th, 18th, 23rd, 31st, and 35th Streets. All but the 
12 th Street station are close to the gates. The Illinois Central 
tracks run north through Grant Park with stations at Randolph and 
Van Buren Streets, offering an additional convenient way to reach 
the Exposition from the north. 

A Motor Boats and Speed Boats, on adjustable schedules according 
to traffic and weather on lake, from Chicago River (Merchandise 
Mart and Michigan Avenue Bridge) and Navy Pier to Exposition 
landings. Lake side hotels and clubs run boats to the Exposition. 
A Steamers from Michigan Avenue Bridge and Xaw Pier to Island 
Pier (23rd Street) at Exposition. 

A Private Yachts may discharge passengers at Island Pier or 31st 
Street Pier (General Motors Bldg.). 

A Airplanes — Amphibian planes on regular schedule from Municipal 
Airport to airport at Exposition (31st Street). 

Police of Chicago, elevated railroad, street-car and bus conductors 
and officials received general praise last summer for their courtesy 
and promptness in giving directions to World's Fair visitors. 

Time may be saved by looking at the map and going to the Ex- 
position entrance nearest to the exhibits that you wish to see first, 
but if that entrance is not the most convenient for you to reach you 
will find that the Exposition's own bus service inside the grounds 
will take you in a few minutes to any part of the Fair.

YOU have come here to see in epitome the great drama of man's 
struggle to lift himself in his weakness to the stars. The spec- 
tacle is enormous, for it includes all the manifestations of man's 
restless energies — the patient laborious researches of the cloistered 
scientist, exploration, adventure, war, the vast works of industry, 
the slow climb from the naked cave man to his descendant of today, 
the outbreak of the play spirit in luxury, in works of art, in music 
and in the insatiable curiosity for seeing new and strange things, 
for thrills, sensations and excitements. 

All the world has been drawn upon to contribute to the spectacle. 
The knowledge of a lifetime of study, the labor of years in preparing 
demonstrations that will be plain to all, are spread before you. The 
treasures of science and art that you will see are priceless. No 
amount of money or the travel of a lifetime could give you the oppor- 
tunity of seeing all these things brought together, except at an Inter- 
national Exposition. This book is prepared to give you plain direc- 
tions for finding everything. 

With new buildings, new color plan, new illumination effects, the 
addition of more than a dozen picturesque ancient and foreign 
villages, great unique water spectacles built out over the lagoons, 
a new Midway on the Island beach on the lake shore, additions to 
the scientific and industrial exhibits, the World's Fair of 1934 will 
seem a different place to those who saw it in its first year. 


The simplest way of understanding the Exposition as a whole is 
by an understanding of its fundamental plan. 

The basic purpose of the Exposition is to illustrate the dependence 
of modern development on scientific research. This is the century 
of scientific advancement. Enlargement of opportunity for man's 
energies and for better living is due to the efforts of scientific men 
throughout the world. Therefore, as background for the Exposition 
as a whole, there has been located in a great central building a 
complete non-commercial display of the basic sciences at work, to 
show in actual demonstrations in animated exhibits the new powers 
of mankind and how they are applied to our uses. 

In the industrial exhibits the result of this basic plan is seen 
throughout the Exposition in an effort on the part of exhibitors 
to demonstrate processes in their exhibits, to show methods rather 
than products and to illustrate with apparatus in action how science 
is used. Purpose of the exhibits is to show how things are done, 
rather than what is done. 


Agriculture in its own great building and collateral areas shows 
the scientific growing of foods and the new methods of distribution. 

Tremendous changes that electricity has brought to human living 
are illustrated in the Electrical Building. 

Transportation is dramatized in the historical exhibits and in 
the parade of airplanes, stream-lined trains and automobiles in the 
Travel and Transport Building. The essential service of the rail- 
roads to civilization is shown. In great special buildings motor 
manufacturers show cars being made, historical exhibits and all the 
parts and materials of the modern car. "Wings of a Century," the 
pageant drama of transportation, uses the greatest collection of 
historic trains and vehicles ever assembled. 

Story of the Government 

In the U. S. Government Building, at the head of the quadrangle 
of the Court of States, is told in a fascinating show the multiplicity 
of services the government performs for its citizens — crime detection, 
health, scientific research, exploration, the expanding services of the 
Department of Labor, the great peace-time works of the army 
engineers, the services of the navy and marine corps. Foreign 
countries have exhibits in government and private buildings. 

Accompanying the immense spectacle of material achievement is 
seen the progress of man himself from his animal beginnings to his 
present status. You see primitive aborigines living and working as 
they did centuries ago. In the Social Science exhibits you see the 
struggle of man through the ages and his struggle today to adjust 
himself to his environment and his new powers. Collateral with 
this is the fascinating group of complete modern homes, showing the 
new methods of economical building for health and efficiency and 
the new arts of furnishing, decoration and labor saving equipment. 
Care of children, their happiness and educational play is demon- 
strated in Enchanted Island. 

The Foreign Villages 

Nowhere on earth has ever been assembled such a collection of 
picturesque villages from strange foreign lands and from long ago 
as you will see at the Exposition. There are the Spanish Village 
with its ancient castles, the winter Black Forest Village from Ger- 
many, the Old English Village of the time of Dr. Samuel Johnson, 
the American Colonial Village, the Irish Village, the Swiss Village 
at the foot of the Alps, the Italian Village with its leaning tower, 
the Tunisian Village, the Saharan "Oasis," the famous Belgian 
Milage, a new Streets of Paris, the quaint Midget Village, the 
"Streets of Shanghai," the Dutch Village and the Mexican Village. 

Northerly Island's lake shore beach is the location of the new 
Midway with its perpetual carnival. The blare of strange music, 
the mysteries and fantastic amusements of the Midway are here. 


High above the lagoons is the aerial cable track, 210 feet overhead, 
between the 628-foot observation towers of the Sky Ride, highest 
man-made structures west of the Atlantic coast. 

The continuous program of events throughout the Fair includes 
athletic sports by land and water in which famous individual stars 
and teams will compete for championships. Free musical entertain- 
ment appealing to every taste will be a continuous feature of the 
Exposition, with gala operatic performances, concerts by famous 
orchestras and bands and appearances of celebrated musical stars, 
dancers and artists of the stage and radio. 

The Art Exhibition 

A short distance from the Exposition in Grant Park is the Art 
Institute of Chicago, where, for safety in its vast range of perma- 
nent galleries, will be housed the World's Fair art exposition of 
1934, the greatest comprehensive show of modern painting, prints 
and sculpture ever gathered in this country. A multitude of new 
works and priceless loans of old and modern masters are in the 
epochal exhibition. 

How to Use the Guide Book 

This brief introductory explanation will give you an understand- 
ing of the underlying plan of the Exposition. As you see the 
sequence of purpose that connects everything, then, wherever you 
start, you will be in key with the great show and can follow up 
the idea. 

To serve all visitors most effectively this official guide book is 
arranged geographically. It takes you into the Exposition from the 
North Entrance and covers the grounds step by step, listing and 
explaining the buildings, attractions and exhibits as you would 
come to them in their order, going from north to south. It would 
have been possible to classify the buildings and exhibits under 
various headings — as Science — Agriculture — Manufacturing, etc. — 
but that would have involved a confusion of crossing and retracing 
our course. 

If you wish to follow out a certain line of thought or study 
along a special series of exhibits — such as the oil industry, chemistry, 
automobile manufacture, sociology, or along almost any other line 
of progress and knowledge — a look at the Index beginning on page 
6 will enable you to check off the locations of the various exhibits 
on your subject and will show you exactly how to get to everything 
and route yourself systematically from the start. The list of exhib- 
itors in the back of the book, beginning on page 170, will tell you 
the locations of their separate displays. This list of exhibitors, 
combined with the general Index, will give you the location of every 
feature in the Exposition. 



The Avenue of Flags 


* Indicates Restaurant. '(Indicates Admission Charge. 

YOU have come through the gates and are in the circular plaza 
inside the North Entrance at 12th street. Uniformed Exposi- 
tion guides are on duty here to direct you. Checking booth and 
free comfort station are in the pavilion around the plaza. Beyond 
the central flag staffs you will find a roller-chair and jinrickisha 

*WELSH ROTISSERIE, lunch counter and restaurant, is at the 
east side of the circle. 

From here starts the Northerly Island bus service across Plane- 
tarium Bridge, but we will go straight south, into the Fair. 

NORTH ENTRANCE BUS TERMINAL is at your right. The 
Exposition bus transportation system, also the Non-Stop Bus Tours 
and the Grey Line Personally Conducted Tours start from here. 

COURT OF HONOR is next. Dignitaries and processions make

with many conveniences, including: bureau of information, registra- 
tion, telephone and telegraph offices, indoor lounge and spacious 
roof terraces with easy chairs overlooking the lagoon. The strik- 
ingly modern building, designed by Nimmons, Carr and Wright, is 
in key with the architectural scheme of the Exposition. It is win- 
dowless and is refreshed by air-circulating equipment equal to that 
of 1,800 ordinary six-room houses. 

A talking moving picture with an educational and entertainment 
show, the mysterious talking radio robot, animated map of the 
United States, demonstrations of laboratory inspections, a series of 
historical dioramas and a home wood-working shop are features of 
the extensive exhibits. 

In the garden adjoining the building is a bungalow, completely 
furnished, decorated and equipped by Sears-Roebuck. 

*Cafeteria restaurant is on the main floor.

out over the water. Here daily free entertainment will be given and 
many celebrated stars will be seen and heard. Program of events 
is displayed at the entrance. 

^Thompson restaurants are at each end of the semicircle. 

Lincoln Exhibits 

ILLINOIS HOST BUILDING houses one of the most compre- 
hensive Lincoln exhibits ever gathered. The Lincoln rooms include 
an exact reproduction of the parlor of his Springfield, 111., home. 
Seventy-two original documents, and photostatic reproductions of 
many others, are in the collection, which includes intimate personal 
letters, Lincoln's partnership agreements in his own handwriting and 
important state papers. Relics include an axe handle carved with 
his own name. "A. Lincoln, New Salem, 1834," and the "betrothal 
stone," a flat rock inscribed "Abraham Lincoln and Ann Rutledge 
were betrothed here July 4, 1833." 

The George Frederick Wright portrait and the long-lost portrait 
by Thomas Buchanan Read are in the exhibit. 

Rotunda of the Illinois Building is decorated with World War 
battle flags. A lecture theatre, lounge and rest room are in the 
building. Illinois products and industries are shown in a series of 
dioramas. The architect is Charles Herrick Hammond. 


SWEDISH PAVILION. The building, erected by the govern- 
ment of Sweden, is occupied this year by an extensive exhibit pre- 
pared by the Swedish Arts and Crafts Association. The importance, 
stressed by Swedish manufacturers, of intimate collaboration be- 
tween artists and workmen, is shown in exhibits of glassware, 
ceramics, silversmithing, pewter, furniture and textiles. Articles 
of everyday use, but of exquisite design and workmanship, are 
shown in an elaborate and dignified display. The work of promi- 
nent Swedish artists in making designs for practical reproduction in 
manufactures shows the progress in decorative and technical quali- 
ties that are sought for in distinctive Swedish products. 

CZECHOSLOVAKIAN PAVILION. This young country, about 
the size of the State of Illinois, but with 15,000,000 population, has 
highly developed industries which are important in the world market. 
The Skoda Works are one of the world's largest armament plants, 
making also machinery and locomotives. In the pavilion you may 
see an exhibit by the Czechoslovak Manufacturers' Association of 
fine Bohemian glass and china ware, damask linens, embroideries, 
costume jewelry, gloves, shoes, musical instruments, hops and malt. 

Exhibits appealing to tourists show the attractions of the cele- 
brated health resorts — Karlsbad, Marienbad and Piestany, with the 
background of Carpathian mountain scenery and the picturesque 
native costumes of the region. 

*Czechoslovakian restaurant, table d'hote and a la carte. Indoor 
and outdoor tables. Also lunch counter. Orchestra. Floor show 
and dancing by guests, 8 p. m. to midnight. 

ITALIAN PAVILION with its impressive entrance under a 
gleaming giant airplane wing houses extensive exhibits illustrating 
the progress of Italy. Two large extensions have been built on either 
side of the pavilion to increase exhibit space in the Exposition of 
1934. On the lawns around the entrances are modern bronze Italian 
sculptures. Around the main rotunda of the pavilion is one of the 
largest and most dramatic mural paintings in the Exposition. It 
depicts the government's control of all transportation facilities by 
land, water and air. Reclamation of 11,000 square miles of agri- 
cultural land by which Italy's wheat production has been increased 
more than 50 per cent is shown. A frieze of translucent photo- 
murals shows the historic and scenic beauties of Italy. 

Products of Italy and its colonies are seen in the bazaar annexes. 

*Italian restaurant, indoor and outdoor tables. Table d'hote and 
a la carte service. Orchestra and dancing by guests.

*Light lunches and wines. 

|Venetian Glass Factory. A circular building north of the Italian 




Pavilion houses a complete Venetian glass factory. Ten Italian 
artist-craftsmen are at work blowing molten glass and fabricating 
the glass art products for which Venice is famous. The exhibit 
includes a museum of mediaeval and modern glass. 

GLADIOLA GARDENS, with a display of beautiful and rare 
gladioli growing outdoors in a landscaped setting beside the lagoon. 


fSKY RIDE mainland tower is near the south end of the Avenue 
of Flags. The spectacular steel web towers of the Sky Ride, rising 
628 feet in the air, are the highest man-made structures west of 
the Atlantic coast. At their tops are observation platforms from 
which is obtained a matchless view of the Exposition spread out 
below you like a brilliantly colored map, with the lake on one side 
and on the other the miles of buildings of Chicago. At night the 
scene is an incredible spectacle of colored light and movement. 

Aerial cable track of the Sky Ride crosses the lagoons at the 210- 
foot level for a trip between the towers, which are 1,850 feet apart. 
In the boat-shaped observation cars the ride is a thrilling novelty, 
enjoyed in perfect safety. 

To make possible this tremendous attraction five great companies 
joined forces. These were: Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Com- 
pany, Mississippi Valley Structural Steel Company, Inland Steel 
Company, the Otis Elevator Company and John A. Roebling's Sons 

The Sky Ride is one of the outstanding engineering works of 
the century. The network of steel cables connecting them is one of 
the world's longest suspension bridges, equal in length to the Ambas- 
sador Bridge at Detroit connecting the United States and Canada. 
During the 1933 Exposition 2,616,389 persons went up the towers 
and crossed in the observation cars. 

CHAPEL CAR, St. Paul, of the American Missions of the Roman 
Catholic Church, is near the 16th street entrance as the exhibit of 
The Extension Society. 

The St. Paul was dedicated by Cardinal Gibbons March 14, 1915, 
at New Orleans. Since then it has traveled thousands of miles, 
chiefly in the south and southwest, visiting lumber camps, construc- 
tion gangs and isolated communities.

fBEXDIX LAMA TEMPLE. This resplendent shrine, known as 
the Golden Pavilion of Jehol, is an exact reproduction of the original 
temple built for the Manchu emperors of China in 1767. It is filled 
with a treasure of statuary, carvings, jewels, bronzes and rich embroi- 


The Lama Temple 
deries. The celebrated explorer, Dr. Sven Hedin, was sent to the 
Orient by Vincent Bendix, Exposition trustee, to find and bring back 
a typical Lama Temple. His quest was ended when he found this 
brilliant relic of the Manchu dynasty. It was crumbling to ruin, 
but a staff of Chinese artist-craftsmen was set to work to duplicate 
each piece of the structure. No nails were used. More than 28,000 
different parts were carved and numbered and shipped to Chicago. 

As the scarlet and gold temple stands in the Exposition, it is 70 
feet square and 60 feet high at the center. Its double-decked roof 
of copper shingles is covered with $25,000 worth of 2 3 -karat gold 
leaf. On the exterior, 28 columns in red lacquer support the lower 
deck. Twenty-eight other columns, 30 feet high, form part of the 
wall. Inside, twelve 37-foot columns support the gilded ceiling and 
the upper deck. Carved grilles in red, blue, yellow and gold, enclose 
the windows. The cornice beams are gilded and carved with images 
of dragons, cats and dogs. 

Treasures of Taoism 

The temple is arranged and equipped for the Lama worship. Its 
treasures include a huge bronze incense burner dating back to the 
Ming dynasty — 1368 to 1644 — a large antique wooden statue of 
the "smiling Buddha,'' bronze prayer wheels, the throne and screen 
of the Ta Lama, or high priest, and his ceremonial robes, the great 
bronze temple bell, prayer rugs, a drum made of two human skulls 
joined together, prayer tables with scrolls of the Lama scriptures 
and ceremonial weapons for banishing demons. Besides these ritual 


objects the temple contains a 
great treasure of pagodas, carv- 
ings and offerings of jewels in 
jade and carved work. Chinese 
interpreters explain the worship 
ceremony and the meanings of 
the details. 

Jade Pagoda, one of the finest 
known examples of this art. 
peculiar to China, is the central 
feature of the exhibits. The 
pagoda, fifty-one inches tall, is 
the product of more than six- 
teen years' labor and is valued 
at $500,000. Even the bells 
hanging from the curved roofs 
of the separate stories, and the 
chains which support them are carved from solid jade. A number of 
other large jade pieces, including flower baskets and lamps carved 
to eggshell thinness, surround the Jade Pagoda. 

The teakwood Gate of Honor before the pavilion and Chinese Gar- 
den is an example of the most elaborate workmanship put by the 
Chinese on these ceremonial arches. 

•[Chinese Theatre, with performances by troupe of native artists.

HALL OF SCIENCE. This building and its exhibits are the 
heart of A Century of Progress. Before you enter it will be well 
to look at the Hall of Science as a building. 

Many miles of spectacles and exhibits are before you, but here 
not only the scientific plan but the art and architecture of the 
Exposition are brought to a focus. 

The architecture of the World's Fair is one of the first expressions 
of the new era of progress that strikes the visitor. Examine the 
Hall of Science and you will be prepared to understand the modern 
thought in architecture which indicates the trend of what may be 
the great public buildings and public squares of the future. 

Consider that where you are standing deep water was rolling only 
a few years ago. You are on man-made land — a creation of 


Man Combatting Ignorance, by John Storrs 

engineering science. The whole Exposition is a demonstration of 
man's advancing control over the forces of nature. The architec- 
tural commission of the Exposition decided at the beginning that it 
would not be in keeping for this great expression of a century of 
progress to hark back to antique times and house itself in the tradi- 
tional manner in buildings copied from ancient Greek temples and 
the Roman Forum. 

An Example of the 
Architecture of the Exposition 

Architects for years have been emancipating themselves from the 
time-worn shackles of tradition. There have been scattered exam- 
ples of buildings making use of new materials and of the new knowl- 
edge and powers of lighting and ventilation as well as the new 
studies of convenience in plan, according to the use that was to 
be made of the building. 

Here, at the World's Fair, for the first time the architects have 
had the opportunity on a great scale and in many different build- 
ings of suggesting what the architecture of the future may be. You 
will see, further on in the Exposition, the new ideas applied to family 
dwellings. We are considering, now, the great exhibit buildings. 

You will note that windowless construction is a characteristic of 
them. This is practical. By the use of artificial lighting the exhib- 
itor avoids the variability of daylight and has constant control over 



the volume and intensity of light. Constant, controlled circulation 
of fresh air is easily provided for. There is no waste space nor 
dark areas. Shut-in effect is avoided by terraces on which you may 
walk outdoors from any floor. 

Beauty of the new architecture is peculiar to itself. It does not 
seek to veil itself in the aroma of ancient history. It is a dynamic, 
stimulating expression of the living age. Its great planes and sur- 
faces give opportunity for striking, impressive, daring or tender color 
effects — a new field for the color sense of the artist-decorator. 


Night surpasses the day in the beauties of this new color decora- 
tion. The possibilities of night color decoration have given this great 
opportunity of floods of changing colored light over these buildings. 
Science has given the artist-decorators these new mediums of color 

Enter now the Hall of Science. This superb example of the new 
architecture is the design of Paul Philippe Cret, of Philadelphia. 
The building is in the form of a gigantic letter U, with its arms 
extending eastward to the shore of the lagoon and enclosing a court 
of three acres. At the southwest corner is the square Carillon 
tower from which the chimes sound every quarter hour. 

You are entering by the north ramp ascent. Before you is a 
semi-circle of tall pylons, chief ornament of which is the heroic 
statue, in high relief, by John Storrs, of man combatting the serpent 
of ignorance. Entrance by the ramp takes you direct to the main 
(upper) floor, which is the best place to begin. 

The theme of the Exposition is the dependence of industrial 
advancement upon the pure sciences. In the Hall of Science the 
fundamental facts of the basic sciences are shown to you as far as 
possible in life processes and in demonstrations in action. These 
exhibits are non-commercial. They show you the facts upon which 
knowledge is based. They show you the powers arising from knowl- 
edge of these facts of nature. They show you where we are today 
in science, and give you the vision of the expanding knowledge and 
power that the future holds for us. The exhibits are made under- 
standable to visitors without scientific training. They are the key 
to the understanding of A Century of Progress. 

Plan of the Science Exhibits 

To make these fascinating displays systematic so that the place 
of each science would be more readily understandable, they are 
divided into six sections: Mathematics, Geology, Biology, Chem- 
istry, Physics and Medicine. Complete story of the scientific exhibits 
is told in the Handbook of the Basic Science Exhibits, obtainable 
at the entrances to the Great Hall, or at information booths. 


Entering the Hall of Science by the main north entrance up the 
ramp from the Avenue of Flags you are in the North Wing of the 
building and in the Mathematics Section. To see all the exhibits 
in their order you might turn to your left here and walk out to the 
end of the North Wing and start back. 

Italian Scientific Exhibit 

At the end of this wing you will find, as an introduction to the 
basic science show, the scientific exhibit of the Italian government. 
Here you will see the beginnings of scientific city planning and 
construction by the builders of ancient Rome. A model of the port 
and adjoining buildings of Rome of the Caesars is accompanied by 
scale reproductions of antique Roman aqueducts and military roads. 
A scale model of the pleasure galley of Caligula, recently uncovered 
by the draining of Lake Nemi, is shown. Nearby is the oldest known 
model of a ball thrust bearing, the parts of which were recovered 
with the galley. Its bronze ball rollers are supposed to have 
supported the turning pedestal of a statue on the galley's prow. 

A complete model reproduction of a Venetian galley of the 17th 
century is shown with models of modern Italian merchant and war 

The exhibit includes models of Alpine tunnels and of pioneer 
electric installations in Italy. A pioneer Italian automobile of 1899 
is shown in comparison with modern Isotta-Fraschini engines. 

Danish Exhibit 

Next in this wing is the scientific exhibit of the Danish govern- 

Three historic astronomical observatories in Denmark — those of 
Stjerneborg, Tycho Brahe's observatory, and the observatory of Ole 
Romer at Uranionborg, are shown in scale models. A wood carving 
of Ole Romer shows the astronomer at his home telescope with the 
apparatus he devised to keep the instrument trained on the star he 
was studying. 

Murals of Danish city and country scenery surround the exhibit, 
which includes modern astronomical equipment and scientific appa- 
ratus. The telegraphone, invented by Waldemar Paulsen, is a 
recording phonograph which can be connected with a telephone to 
reply to a call in the absence of the subscriber and to take a message. 

The Danish and Italian exhibits will be removed after the Fair to 
be permanent exhibits in the Museum of Science and Industry in 


Leaving this section, we start now to begin the tour of the basic 
sciences. We are in the Geology Section, in which the story of the 
origin and growth of our planet is told. 


The Hall of Science at Night 

Here you will see moving reproductions of volcanoes in action, 
spouting geysers, upheaval of mountain ranges, creation of canyons 
by cataracts, glacier action, oil drills in operation, gold and coal 
mines, underground torrents and moving sand dunes. 

Mountain ranges are shown being thrown up by pressure appa- 
ratus operating on layers of materials simulating the strata of the 
earth's crust. Large models of sections of the crust show typical 
deep strata formations and the surface formations which indicate 
to geologists the structure beneath. 

Composition of the earth to the globe's center is shown by illumi- 
nated sections and working models revealing the modern scientific 
knowledge that the core of the earth is metal. A lecture accom- 
panies the exhibit. 

Rare fluorescent minerals, which recently have become available, 
have been added to the exhibit of these substances in the Geology 
Section. The additions have been gathered during the past winter 
as a result of a costly and extensive research. 

Visitors may test model seismographs — instruments for recording 
earthquake shocks — and see how geologists use them to get records 
of miniature earthquakes produced by dynamite. The seismograph 
record tells the nature of the underground formation. 

A great exhibit of oil drilling operations, actually going on — 
reduced in scale — shows the greatest present application of scientific 
prospecting and also the conditions under the earth more than a 
mile below the surface. We see different kinds of drilling by percus- 
sion and rotary drills, pipe casings set and wells "coming in." 

One of the most complete sets of working models and illuminated 
action dioramas ever made is used in the oil drilling exhibits. 


The National Parks 

A spouting geyser in action and an operating model of the crater 
of Kilauea are in the exhibit of the National Parks, which includes 
lighted dioramas of caves, glaciers and canyons in the Parks. 

Exhibits of large scale mining operations include a model of a 
giant gold dredge scooping up the bottom of a jungle river. 

Niagara Falls, roaring over its rocky parapet, is shown in an 
operating reproduction of the cataract which shows the appearance 
of the crest of the falls at different periods as the water has cut its 
way back since the discovery of America. 

The deep underground network of rivers and streams is illus- 
trated by a working reproduction of the drainage system from Wis- 
consin, 250 miles north of Chicago, under the city and into Lake 
Michigan. The effect of past glacial eras in fertilizing soil is shown 
by comparisons of glaciated and unglaciated areas. Glacial history 
of the Great Lakes region, exhibited by light effects in a diorama, 
shows how the outlet has been through various rivers before the 
St. Lawrence. 


From Geology we pass into the next section — this is where we 
entered the building. We are now in the section of Mathematics, 
"Queen of the Sciences." Here is undertaken what never has been 
attempted before in a popular exhibit — to illustrate and explain the 
concepts of abstract mathematics by moving object lessons. 

In a new set of Dr. Saul Pollock's celebrated mathematical models 
we see forms of cubes, cones and ellipses change into other forms 
and get a visual grip of their relations to each other. Practical ap- 
plications in everyday life are used as illustrations. 

Einstein's theory of relativity is explained by a series of exhibits 
understandable by the layman. The Fourth Dimension is another 
subject rendered intelligible by object lessons. 

Cross Section of a Coal Mine 

The perpetual mo- 
tion fallacy is shown 
by six models of fam- 
ous historical attempts 
at perpetual motion 
machines. The ma- 
chines are made to 
operate by hidden con- 
trivances to show how 
this has been done a 
number of times for 
purposes of fraud. 

How impossibilities 
may be apparently 
proved true is shown 
when before your eyes 
it is proved that two 
equals one and that 
two unequal lines are 
equal. A new paradox 
is offered each week.

Airplane Tests 

On the balcony a "wind tunnel'' shows on various airplane models 
the application of the theory of aerodynamics. 

Stepping on a round platform mounted on ball bearings, you may 
experiment with the theory of the conservation of rotational momen- 
tum. Holding out a dumbbell in each hand as the platform is 
started slowly revolving, you may speed it up by lowering the dumb- 
bells and slow it down again by raising the dumbbells, repeating the 
process as often as you like, changing the speed without any addi- 
tional force being applied, but simply by changing the angle of the 

Service of mathematics in the development of radio is shown by 
historical exhibits of Marconi's original apparatus. 

The Stratosphere Flight 

The stratosphere flight — with which the Exposition was associated 


last year — by Lieut. Commander T. G. W. Settle, U. S. N ., and Major 
Chester L. Fordney, U. S. M. C, is the subject of a special exhibit, 
the purpose of which is to show the usefulness to practical science 
of the observations made in the record flight. The instruments used 
and the records made on the flight are shown and explained. 

How mathematical principles are used in gun-fire, in navigation 
by the position of the stars and in communication is shown here 
by a United States Navy exhibit. A gyroscopic compass in action 
has ''repeaters" in different parts of the floor showing at all times 
the direction indicated by the main compass. 

From the main Mathematics Section we pass, now, to: 


In the Physics Section a series of exhibits show the generation 
and control of power. 

The exhibits are divided in six groups: gases, sound, electricity, 
radio, light and penetrating invisible rays. 

Operating apparatus shows how the expansion of gases produces 
the effects of refrigeration. A working model with magnified mole- 
cules represented by steel balls shows how the internal pressure in 
an automobile tire is due to incessant bombardment of the walls by 
the molecules which have the speed of rifle bullets. 

We see an operating steam engine with glass cylinders, showing 
the working of the expanding steam. A drop of water four inches 
in diameter illustrates why drops are globular and shows why their 
shape in falling suggests the principles of "stream line" design. 

What sound is and how sound waves travel are shown by operat- 
ing exhibits. W T e see a large tuning fork vibrating slowly with a 
wide stroke. Amplification of the sound is shown by four tubes of 
different length. W T e see the image of the vibrating flames within 
the tubes reflected by a rotating mirror. 

That sound is vibration and that the variety of sound is produced 
by vibrations of different length is shown by a magnified image of 
the sound-creating edge of a movie film. As the jagged line passes 
we see that the broken light, which itself is a form of vibration, is 
changed into sound by the vibration being transmitted to the dia- 
phragm of a loud speaker and we see the light translated into words 
and music. 

Fundamental principles of the electric dynamo, transformer and 
motor are shown by simplified moving exhibits. 

The valve tube, heart of the radio set, is analyzed and explained 
in detail by exhibits showing the action of the filament, grid and 


Hall of Science, Tower and Court 

Light Rays 

Refraction, or bending of rays of light by means of lenses is 
shown, and we see how the lens forms an image, magnified or reduced. 
We see illustrated that light is a vibration. A magnified exhibit 
shows that the wave length of the vibration is about twenty mil- 
lionths of an inch. Different colors have different wave lengths. 
Method of analyzing blended colors into separate wave lengths iden- 
tifying the different colors is shown. 

The electron and the proton, building stones of all atoms, were 
discovered by physicists. These most minute of all known divisions 
of matter are invisible but at speeds of 100 to 100,000 miles a 
second they are called cathode, canal, alpha or beta rays and pro- 
duce effects which can be seen. 

Luminous effects of cathode and canal rays are shown in vacuum 
tubes, also tracks of alpha rays from radium. Exhibits show the 
penetrating effects of X-rays, which are produced by cathode rays 
striking other substances. 


From the Physics Section we now walk into the Great Hall of 
the building. The treatment of this huge modern interior again 

[ 35 ] 

calls on us to give a moment's thought to the decorative methods 
of the new architecture. The hall is 240 feet long, 60 feet wide 
and with a ceiling 57 feet high. The geometrical decoration of the 
wall spaces illustrates the modern idea of having the ornament in 
keeping with the function of the interior. 

Above the north doorway at the balcony level is one of the three 
large mural decorations by John Norton. What could be more mod- 
ern and original in conception than the treatment of a "graph" of 
scientific information as a mural decoration. "The Frequencies of 
Electromagnetic Waves in Kilocycles per Second" is the title. At 
the far end of the hall in a similar bay above the south entrance you 
will see a companion decoration, treated in the same manner, 
"Dimensions of Natural Objects in Miles." 

Framing the center door to the terrace and towering toward the 
lofty roof is another graphic decoration in scarlet and gold, "The 
Tree of Knowledge." 

Emblazoned on the walls of the great hall as part of the deco- 
rative scheme are quotations which epitomize the thought of fourteen 
great minds on the development of the basic sciences. Besides these 
quotations are nine axiomatic definitions. 

The Clock of the Ages 

At your left, as you enter the great hall from this end, you look 
back a moment at the history of this planet as it is visualized in a 
remarkable demonstration — "The Clock of the Ages." This is a ten- 
foot dial representing the advancing geologic periods by compressing 
two billion years into one revolution of the clock hands in four 
minutes. Mammals, the dominating life of the present, do not 
appear until almost the end of the revolution, and man is on the 
stage only a few seconds. 

In the center of this end of the hall you see the gondola in which 
Dr. Auguste Piccard made the first ascent of 54,000 feet into the 

The Periodic Table of the Elements is in the center of the floor 
at the south end. In this illuminated pedestal, surmounted by a 
globe which shows their distribution, we see the ninety-three known 
elements that compose the world of matter. We can see their atomic 
relation to each other, and this gives the clew to their separation and 
recombination into different substances, the principles of which w r e 
may now watch demonstrated as in the active operations of the 
chemical laboratory. 


We are now in the Chemistry Section where we shall see demon- 
started the science of the transformation of matter. 

A simple chemical change by separation is shown by metallic mer- 
cury being produced from mercuric oxide — a red powder — by heating 


The Great Hall hi the Hall of Science 

in a quartz retort over an electric heater. Silvery mercury drips 
from the retort tube into a glass jar while the oxygen blows away, 
presence of the oxygen being shown by a smoldering wick bursting 
into flame as the oxygen strikes it. 

An extensive series of actual chemical operations of this type is 
shown, illustrating transformations by separation and by combina- 


tion. Explanations by placards and by voice make each reaction 
easily understandable. 

A ribbon of iron burns like paper because of a jet of oxygen. A 
stream of liquid fire is caused by a jet of phosphorus forced through 
a small orifice and instantly combining with the air. We see potas- 
sium dripped into water and bursting into flame. A number of 
other illustrations show how the atoms of different elements rush to 
combine with each other. The exhibits show how chemical changes 
are always accompanied by energy changes — heat or light being 
liberated or absorbed. 

Furnaces at 3400° C. 

A battery of electrical furnaces — the principle of which is the 
same whether they are laboratory bench size or fifty-ton size — shows 
the use of intense heat, up to 3,400° Centigrade, to induce chemical 
combinations. Melting lime and coke together to produce calcium 
carbide is demonstrated. You may safely put your hand inside an 
induction furnace in which a rod of iron will blaze and drip like 
melting wax — but your ring or wrist watch would melt off instantly. 

Extreme cold produced by the expansion of a gas is illustrated by 
a series of demonstrations with liquid air. The principle is shown 
by air being admitted to a partial vacuum in a flask. A rainbow 
in myriads of minute water drops shows the chill of the expanding air. 

Liquid air is produced by air being compressed at 3,000 pounds 
to the square inch. Suddenly released, it chills to a pale bluish 
liquid about the consistency of water and at a temperature of 317 
degrees below zero. 

The demonstrator dips a stick into mercury and then into a flask 
of liquid air. The mercury instantly freezes hard as steel, and he 
will drive nails with it. He will plunge a rod of hot iron into the 
liquid air and the iron will blaze up on account of the concentrated 
oxygen. A burning stick of carbon plunged into liquid air burns 
incandescently. When the flask of liquid air is set on a cake of 
ice the liquid air boils fiercely on account of the comparative heat 
of the ice. 

An elaborate working diorama of a model sulphur mine shows 
the mill and surface operations, the sulphur deposit 500 feet below 
the surface and the method of melting the sulphur and bringing it up. 

Colloid Chemistry 

Exhibits of colloid chemistry show the methods of purification of 
water and air and of separation of gold from the ore. 

A colloid is a substance suspended in another substance, the sus- 
pended substance being so finely divided that it is invisible, will 
not settle and cannot be removed by filtration. 


The Periodic Table of the Elements 

Contaminated water is shown purified by a solution of alum which 
forms' a jelly-like substance and sinks, carrying the colloidal impuri- 
ties with it. Smoky air is shown cleared by passing it between 
electrically charged plates. The colloidal particles become elec- 
trically charged, cling to the plates and the air blows out pure. 

Gold ore is shown pulverized, mixed with water and oil and 
churned into foam. The base material sinks while the gold remains 
colloidally suspended in the froth which is skimmed off. 

A giant talking and gesturing robot, ten feet tall, with a trans- 
parent digestive tract, is the dramatic feature of the exhibit of 
physiological chemistry. In a theatre at the end of the hall, the 
robot gives a lecture on the chemistry of food and shows food pass- 
ing through his own stomach and intestines, and being digested. 



Before we enter the Biology Section, we see at this end of the 
Great Hall a remarkable moving model showing how trees grow. In 
this moving exhibit we see a section of a basswood twig, magnified 
to seven and one-half feet in diameter, representing a branch three 
years old. The twig adds a year of growth in seventy-five seconds, 
becoming nine feet in diameter by the accretion of new material. 

We now enter the Biology Section, occupying the South Wing of 
the main floor of the Hall of Science. 

At the entrance of the section is one of the most unusual and 
interesting scientific exhibits. It is the Microvivarium, developed 
by Dr. Georg Rommert. Actual drops of water are the stage of this 
exhibition. High power microscopes look through the drops and 
project on screens the scenes greatly enlarged, so that you may see 
the ferocious, weird, incredible microscopic living creatures, swim- 
ming, eating, making love and fighting in their infinitesimal world. 

The Biology Section takes up the story of how life takes form — 
from the primitive cell to its highest evolution in man. Magnified 
cells and moving models demonstrate the principles of growth in 
animals and plants. 

Development of the human being from the cell is told in a series 
of embryological exhibits. Cages of healthy guinea pigs illustrate 
variations through heredity. 

From Fish to Man 

Evolution of the human face — from fish to man — is shown by a 
series of models in the Paleontology exhibit. Evolution of the 
horse and other mammals and of the invertebrates also is shown by 
complete models and comparative exhibits. 

A life size model of a man shows the circulation of the blood by 
means of a magnified heart pumping, the valves working and the 
red blood flowing out through the arterial system while blue blood 
is returned by the veins. 

The different characteristics that produce high or deep voices are 
shown by moving models of the chest and throat. The lungs move, 
the ribs expand and the larynx vibrates. 

How plants grow is shown by a moving exhibit of the marriage 
of plant cells in a magnified dahlia stalk. A pollen grain from 
another plant drops into the flower, moves down to the ovule and in 
four stages the united cells produce a living seed containing a minia- 
ture plant. 

That food elements are produced in plants only in daylight is shown 
by a moving exhibit of the cell structure of a corn stalk. Circulation 
through the cells of oxygen, carbon-dioxide and water vapor is shown. 
At night the plant gains size but food elements are formed only under 
sunlight by the natural complete influence of all the sun's rays. 


The Alchemist's Laboratory 


We now descend to the ground floor of the Hall of Science, to the 
section of Medicine. 

The display of the Medical Sciences visualizes the tremendous 
advance in the past century in the knowledge of the causes, detection, 
prevention and cure of human and animal diseases. Scientific medical 
institutions of England, France, Germany and Italy have cooperated 
with the American associations. Large additions made to the Medical 
Section for the Exposition of 1934 include: 

The Henry Ford Hospital of Detroit, Mich., shows oxygen therapy 
in the treatment of pneumonia, and the tannic acid treatment of 
burns for diminution of pain and more plastic healing. 

Methods of medical evidence in crime detection are shown by the 
medico-legal exhibit of the Institute of Medicine of Chicago. 

Water, heat and rest therapy are shown by the U. S. Government 
exhibit from Hot Springs, Ark., National Park. The Chicago Roent- 
gen Society has an exhibit of the X-ray, including a skiagraph of the 
entire human body as revealed by the X-ray.

which change frequency and 
amplitude corresponding to 
sounds produced by speech. 

The Transparent Man 

In the Medical Section are a 
number of the most remarkable 
exhibits ever prepared by scien- 
tists. Outstandingly spectacular 
is the Transparent Man. This 
life-size figure is one of only 
two in the world. It is from the 
Deutsches Hygiene Museum in 
Germany and is an example of 
the patient labor of German 
science. The figure has a skin 
of transparent cellon. All the 
organs of the body are in place 
and are illuminated in turn, 
showing their size and position. 
You walk around the figure and 
look through it as if you were 
possessed of X-ray eyes. 

The transparent man is a 
handsome figure in the classic 
attitude of a suppliant like the statue of the young Antinous. The 
gradual lighting up of its interior is a spectacle of singular dramatic 
power as it reveals the organism that is inside every human body. 
Elsewhere moving models of parts of the body may be operated by 
the visitor showing the action of joints, operation of the breathing 
apparatus, circulation of the blood, the larynx in different states and 
horizontal sections of the body, are shown in a life-size model in 
eight parts. 

The Embryos 
A most fascinating exhibit is that of the various stages of the 
human embryo, shown by the Loyola Medical School of Chicago. 
This exhibit attracted so much attention last year that it has been 
given greatly increased space. The display includes an exhibit of 
actual cross sections of human bodies. 

The works of Louis Pasteur, pioneer of bacteriology, and of Robert 
Koch, who discovered the tubercle bacillus, are shown in commemo- 
rative exhibits.

From the great open court between the wings of the Hall of 
Science, 10,000 persons at a time may witness the performance of 
seeming miracles on the stage of the Science Theatre. The stage 
is at the open end of the court with its back toward the lagoon. 

The different "acts" show invisible rays and other mysterious 
powers in action, performing apparently impossible feats of magic. 
Wireless telephony will repeat from the stage conversations and 
interviews from airplanes and from distant parts of the world. 

The science theatre acts are planned on an educational basis and 
the principles involved are explained. 


As the season advanced last year it was sometimes difficult even 
for the huge observatory telescopes to pick up the rays of the star 
Arcturus in its position in the brilliant part of the evening skies in 

The Swiss Village 

time for the star's rays to be used to turn on the lights of the Exposi- 
tion. This year the rays of Arcturus will light the Exposition Beacon 
in the court of the Hall of Science every evening at twilight. 

The Beacon is a great torch flaming from the top of an orna- 
mental pillar. A powerful reflecting telescope on the terrace of the 
Hall of Science picks up the ray, which has been traveling 40 light 
years from Arcturus, and this ray, amplified, lights the Beacon. 

Restaurants in the Hall of Science: 

^Triangle Restaurant in North Wing. Also grill. 

*Century Grill in North Wing. Also lunch counter. 

*Drug Store in North Wing. Lunch counter and table service.

teristic parts of the older portion of Berne, capital of Switzerland. 
Plaster casts of exteriors are used to give exactness to the houses 
and chalets. St. Bernard dogs, Alpine guides, watch makers, Swiss 
lace makers and cheese makers are seen. A group of yodelers and 
Swiss maidens give entertainment in the village square with native 
songs and folk dances. Background of the village is an Alpine scene 
of rugged peaks and valleys.

Diamond Mine 

fA South African diamond mine in operation, with native laborers, 
is seen in the $5,000,000 exhibit of the cooperating diamond and 
jewelry interests. Thirty tons of diamond- bearing blue clay from the 
Kimberley mines were brought from South Africa for the mining 
demonstration. You have the illusion of descending 1,500 feet to 
the workings where the Kaffirs are toiling. You see the clay brought 
up on elevators and the diamonds recovered on the grease tables. A 
compound, in which the South African native workers live, is back- 
ground for the diamond pit. 

Cutting and polishing of diamonds is shown in a reproduction 
of a section of Amsterdam, Holland.

of the building. Here you may see rare and almost priceless treasures 
of antique art, outstanding among which are a Minoan (Cretan-My- 
cenean) gold cup, a vase and a ring dating from almost 4,000 years 
ago, and the Great Chalice of Antioch. 

Elaborate carvings on 
the golden treasures 
show them to be prod- 
ucts of the Minoan era 
of Greek culture from 
1530 to 1750 B. C. They 
were discovered in an 
island tomb in the Med- 
iterranean and are of 
such rarity that only in 
the Greek Museum in 
Athens can similar ob- 
jects be found. 

Their value lies not 
alone in the metal nor in 
the beauty of the crafts- 
manship. The carvings, 
The Minoan Treasures depicting the sports and 

ceremonies of the time, are of great archaeological interest. 

The graceful vase, or rhyton, gives two pictures of sporting events. 
The upper portion shows three powerful bulls being led into the 
arena by a company of slender youths. Below, two pairs of boxers, 
equipped with headguards and gloves, are seen entering the ring. 

On the cup a body of soldiers and a group of farmers are per- 
forming the ceremony of treaty. The slender bodies and plumed 
hats of the military guards is in marked contrast with the rustic 
bearing and bulky dress of the rurals. 


The ring carries on its engraved bezel a scene from a temple ritual. 
The high priestess, or goddess, is seen, accompanied by two assistant 
priestesses. Their costumes show the metal corsets, wasp-like waists 
and bell-shaped skirts that identify them as Minoans. 
The Chalice of Antioch 

The Great Chalice of Antioch is one of the earliest relics of the 
Christian faith. 

The Chalice is 7.56 inches high. The inner cup would contain 
about two quarts of liquid. The outer vessel is of silver, elaborately 
wrought and standing on a low pedestal. It is made to be a con- 
tainer for the inner cup, a silver bowl of great antiquity. 

According to Dr. Gustavus A. Eisen, who was entrusted with the 
early study and renovation of the vessel, the Chalice probably was 
executed between years 50 and 90 of the Christian era. The delicate 
decoration of the Chalice includes two portrait groups of both of 
which the Christ is the central figure. 

One group show r s Jesus as mature yet young man, beardless, dig- 
nified, clothed in a toga. Below him are Paul and Peter; above, at 
left and right are James and Thaddeus. Behind Paul is an old, 
wrinkled man, St. Andrew, brother of John. 

The other group shows Jesus as a boy, holding in his hand the 
scroll of the law on two staffs. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John sit 
around him and behind Matthew is St. James the greater, brother 
of John. 

The Chalice of Antioch 

Surrounding these treasures is a collection of religious treasures 
of the ages, including mural paintings, stained glass, carvings, stat- 
uary, religious portraits, embroideries, vestments, religious vessels 
and ecclesiastical furniture. 


"Last Supper," Carved in Mother of Pearl 
fin a room at the south end of the building a miniature carving 
in mother of pearl of "The Last Supper" is exhibited. The carving 
is 30 by 35 inches. It was executed about 200 years ago by an 
Armenian lapidary, Ivaz Khanbeyian. It represents Jesus and the 
disciples at the table. Above and behind them is represented the 
scene of the Resurrection. In order to exhibit the delicate details of 
the figures the carving is shown under a magnifying glass. 

*Restaurant, indoor and outdoor tables. No alcoholic beverages. 


FACTURING CORPORATION. Displays of plumbing, heating 
and air conditioning equipment, housed in kiosks scattered through 
a Spanish garden. The restful setting of sunken and formal gardens,

monsters. On the heaped up reddish brownstone hillside of the age of 
reptiles the forty-ton brontosaurus swings his long neck, jerks his 
huge tail, clashes his jaws and emits life-like screeching grunts. In a 
pool a glaring-eyed trachodon, bigger than a hippopotamus, splashes 
with his huge clawed foot. He is watching a fight between a three- 
horned triceratops and a tyrannosaurus, most ferocious creature that 
ever lived, with crocodile jaws and hind legs like a kangaroo. Near

HA VOLINE THERMOMETER. The 22 7-foot high thermometer 
is the largest in the world and the only one of its kind in existence. 
In the building which forms the base of the thermometer is a pleas- 
ant lounge for visitors. 

The thermometer itself is a triangular tower, 218 feet tall, with 
a thermometer scale on each face. The mechanism by which the 
colored neon gas tubes of the scale are operated is an ingenious 
amplification of the power of the infinitesimally small movement of 
expanding mercury under pressure in a bulb exposed to the outside 
temperature. As the mercury expands into a capillary tube it

actuates electrical power which lights successive sections of the neon 
tubes up the tower sides. 

The tower is sponsored by the Indian Refining Company, an

mainland side. Below her decks, in the hold of the vessel, in the 
space occupied as sleeping quarters and mess hall on the first Byrd 
Antarctic Expedition, is a reproduction of "Little America," exactly 
as it was found by Admiral Byrd on his return to Antarctica in 
January of this year. 

The reproduction of "Little America" on "The City of New York" 
is 28 feet long by 12 feet wide and was made exactly to scale by the 
Museum of Natural History of New York. Remainder of the space 
below decks is filled with a collection of relics of the Byrd Expedi- 
tion, scientific instruments, food, clothing, and specimens of all the 
bird and animal life of the Antarctic Continent. 


FIRESTONE BUILDING. Here you see the most modern type 
of automobile tire factory in full operation, turning out complete 
tires ready for your car. Beginning with the bales of crude rubber 
as they are received from the Firestone plantations in Liberia, Africa, 
the whole process is carried out, including a demonstration of the 
exhaustive wear and resistance tests used to determine the best 
methods of tire construction. 

The Firestone Building 

The crude rubber is first ''masticated" in mixing machines in 
which are added the additional ingredients needed for tire rubber. 
Next is the "gum dipping" process by which the tire cords are impreg- 
nated. Xext the cords are coated on both sides with rubber under 
pressure in the "calendering" machine. Following operations in the 
building of a tire educate the visitor in the complex scientific 
process, last operation of which is the vulcanizer from which the 
finished tire emerges for inspection and wrapping. 

Varieties of tires produced by Firestone are shown in an exhibit 
hall, together with the tubes, brake-lining, spark plugs, batteries and 
other automotive products of the company. 

t AQUATIC SHOW: Exhibitions of swimming, diving and 
aquatic sports in an indoor pool. Men and girl champion swimmers 
give the show. 

WALGREEN DRUG STORE. Complete modern drug store. 

* Fountain lunch and cafe service. 

THE HUB. Store of Henry C. Lytton & Sons, with men's and 
boys', women's and misses' wear, accessories and sporting goods 
for sale. 

*CENTURY GRILL. Also lunch counter. 

^MAYFLOWER Doughnut Restaurant. Tables and lunch counter. 

We now turn back, in this guide to the Exposition, and go through 
Northerly Island from north to south, including the lagoon bridge 
features, before proceeding further south on the mainland. 


Largest fountain ever constructed, extending 670 feet south from 
the Planetarium Bridge into the center of North Lagoon. Through 
its outlets flow 68,000 gallons of water a minute, enough to serve 
a city of 1,000,000 inhabitants. With a Niagara-like roar, the foun- 
tain may be heard a half-mile away. Flow of the world's next 
largest fountain is only 14,000 gallons per minute. 

A succession of powerful arching jets leads from the bridge to the 
water-dome at the south end, 40 feet high and 200 feet in diameter. 
Three single sprays around the dome throw water 75 feet into the air. 

Submarine lights extend the entire length of the fountain, coloring 
the water green, red, amber, blue or white. Thyratron tubes control 
the play of light. 

Back of the fountain, on the lower level of the bridge, a bank of 
40 powerful searchlights can be operated either automatically or 
manually from a control room in the base of the bridge. The floods 
of light in changing colors pour above the fountain and blend in 
the air with spectacular effect. A similar aurora illumination is at 
the south end of the grounds.

The Wonder Bakery Building 


WONDER BAKERY BUILDING. Demonstration of a modern 
bakery in operation is given in this building by the makers of 
Wonder Bread. The story of scientific bread-making is told, begin- 
ning with the automatic weighing, measuring and mixing of the 
ingredients. Mixing machines knead the dough. Loaf sections are 
weighed and cut and then go into the travelling ovens where they 
move forward continuously in mechanically regulated heat. Endless 
belts bring the finished loaves out of the ovens. The loaves move 
on conveyors to slicing machines and then the sliced loaves are 
wrapped automatically in moisture-resisting paper, sealed, labelled 
and loaded into trucks for quick distribution while fresh, without, 
at any time, being touched by hands. 

Dioramas and exhibits show other details relating to scientific 
bakery food production. 

The Clavilux, or color-organ, which plays color effects on a moving 
picture screen to produce emotional effects similar to those of music, 
is an entertainment feature of the building. 

^Bakery restaurant and cafeteria. Indoors and outside terrace. 
No alcoholic drinks. 

The Brewery Exhibits Building 


The Planetarium and Terrazzo Promenade 


BREWERY EXHIBITS BUILDING. The story of beer, from 
grain in the fields to beverage in the glass, is told by exhibits in this 
building. Pictures, dioramas and working models show the many 
industries that cooperate in the process. 

We see how the grains are harvested and malted, how the hops 
are prepared. The ancient art of brewing, which was well estab- 
lished in Babylon 6,000 years B. C, is explained and modern brewing 
equipment exhibited. 

There are displays of barrels and bottles to hold the beer, and of 
bottling machinery to transfer it from the vats to the bottles. Other 
exhibits show brewery trucks, bars and tavern furnishings, pitchers 
and glasses. 

Adjoining the exhibit hall is a large rathskeller where beer and 
foods cooked in the German manner are served. A cafeteria occu- 
pies the entire second floor, both indoors and the surrounding 

*Rathskeller. Indoor dining room and outdoor tables, special- 
izing in German cooking, a la carte. Orchestra. 

^Cafeteria. Second floor dining room and terraces. 


tADLER PLANETARIUM and Astronomical Museum is a per- 
manent scientific institution which, by its location on the promontory 
at the northeast corner of Northerly Island, is included in the Expo- 
sition grounds. It supplies the Astronomy section of the basic sci- 
ence exhibits, supplementing those in the Hall of Science. An 
intricate scientific mechanism, the Zeiss Planetarium projector, pro- 
vides the spectacle of the heavenly bodies as seen from the Earth. 
It is the first one to be erected in the United States and one of only 
a few in existence. 

The hourly lecture-demonstrations during the period of the Expo- 


sition will show the daily motion of the sky with sun, moon, planets, 
and stars rising and setting, whirling about the pole; will show the 
annual motion of the sun with the months swiftly passing and the 
planets tracing their intricate paths; and finally, there will be an 
alternative course, either taking the audience to the southern hemis- 
phere to see the southern sky with the Southern Cross, or toward 
the North Pole to view the Midnight Sun, experience the six months' 
day and six months' night with the aurora playing above. 

Should you arrive during a lecture you may occupy the time in 
the museum halls by examining the celebrated collection of ancient 
and modern astronomical instruments. The Planetarium is under 
the direction of Dr. Philip Fox. 


TERRAZZO PROMENADE. Approach to the Planetarium from 
Planetarium Bridge. The esplanade, of brass-stripped terrazzo 
mosaic, consists of two promenades, each 19 feet wide, between 
which is a series of shallow fountain basins, each basin in mosaic 
design depicting a month of the year. The promenade is built by 
the National Terrazzo and Mosaic Association to remain perma- 
nently in its place. 


FOODS BUILDING. This building, 658 feet long, is an example 
of the most modern type of exhibit building. Architects are E. H. 
Bennett and Arthur Brown, Jr. 

Displays of foods, both in their raw state and ready for the table, 
of farm machinery, food manufacturing processes and food distribu- 
tion, are seen here. 


FARM MACHINERY HALL, at the north end of the Agricul- 
tural building, exhibits the latest types of tractors, cultivators, corn 
pickers and other farm machines. A series of dioramas, accurate 
copies of antique machines and motion pictures depict a century 
of farm history. 

A mechanical cow that moos, moves, breathes and continuously 
gives milk, is part of the dairy exhibit. A twine-manufacturing dem- 
onstration uses transparencies and machines in slow motion to show 
every operation from the time the hanks of fiber are received from 
Yucatan or the Philippines until the 8-pound balls are ready for 
shipment to American grain growers. 

A driverless radio-controlled farm tractor is demonstrated in an 
outside plot just west of the building. 

r 66 1 


Entering the main exhibit hall, we learn how breakfast food is 
made. Working machines carry the grain from its raw to finished 
state. Other features tell the story of biscuits and cereal foods. 

A canning demonstration shows the housewife how to can her food 
at home in tin. Pressure cookers and sealers are also shown. An 
exhibit of honey and other bee products features a hive of real bees 
working under glass. A series of photographs of tuna fishing is 
background for a display of canned tuna and sardines. 

Various ways to preserve fruits and vegetables, meats, poultry, 
game and fish, by pressure cooker, oven, hot water bath, cold pack 
and open kettle, are demonstrated. A new method of coffee manu- 
facture is demonstrated. 

Sugar and salt are the subjects of adjoining exhibits that show 
how little most of us know about the things we use at every meal. 
A nine-story open front model of a sugar refinery is one item in an 
exhibit that tells the history of sugar manufacture. Greatly enlarged 
crystals of table salt are seen behind a large magnifying glass with 
transparencies showing other uses for this salt on either side. 

A new fruit-flavored pectin is made while we watch, and samples 
are distributed. Prune juice as a beverage is featured in a display 
of prunes and apricots, fresh and packaged. 

Automatic Soft-Drink Bottling Plant 

Beneath a crystal waterfall, a bottling unit demonstrates the com- 
pleteness of automatic production. Bottles in rows go through five 
baths in caustic soda solution and four rinsings and are then con- 
veyed to two revolving fillers. As they travel around the smaller 
circle, each gets a shot of syrup and steps aboard the larger circle 
to be filled with carbonated water, capped and taken away on the 

The unit fills 148 bottles per minute and is tended by three inspec- 
tors — a man who examines the bottles for chips as they come out 
of the washer, and two girls who look through magnifying lenses 
at the passing parade of filled bottles. 

Gaily covered murals of hop pickers at work in the Bavarian hop 
fields cover the walls of an inviting lounge. 


A mechanical bacon sheer with a capacity of 1,000 pounds an 
hour is shown in action. Girls in spotless uniforms wrap and pack 
the bacon as it flows from the machine. 

A display of packing house products includes soap and cosmetics, 
gelatine, insulating materials, glue and tallow, as well as animal and 
poultry foods. Above this exhibit are a second floor terrace res- 
taurant and a third floor roof garden. 


Under a dome in the center of the building a scientific demon- 
stration shows the effect on the human system of coffee in different 
conditions. Packaged coffee and other food products are exhibited. 

Demonstrators illustrate a simplified method of making fancy- 
shaped patty shells, waffles and similar dainties. Glass coffee makers 
and a visible high-speed electric broiler are shown. There are dem- 
onstrations of a stain remover. A new type of cooker, developed in 
Germany, is seen in operation. 

In a spacious lounge, visitors may rest or examine a collection of 
old books on the subject of food production. 

Foods from Foreign Lands 

Fish from Alaska, olives from Spain, pineapples from Hawaii, 
fruits from California, beef and dairy products from all parts of 
America, gathered for distribution to the world's dinner table, are 
shown with an illuminated world map. There is a recorded voice 
accompaniment and seven dioramas of farm and fishery scenes. 
Smartly uniformed girls demonstrate the art of packing stuffed olives 
into glass jars. 

Jars of almost every conceivable kind of of preserves, from apple 
jelly to rattlesnake meat, are displayed in an exhibit of home canned 
foods entered in the 1933 International Home Canning Contest. 
Jars from every state in the Union and from nearly every foreign 
country are included. 

In a glass oven, central feature of a candy-making demonstration, 
nut-meats are baked like potatoes and when done are taken out and 
buttered, also like potatoes. This process replaces the customary 
method of boiling nut-meats in grease. Across the aisle, girls show 
how easy it is to make ice cream and gelatine desserts at home. We 
may watch food being cooked in a new type of pressure cooker. 

''Untouched by human hands," Philadelphia cream cheese is man- 
ufactured, wrapped and packaged by automatic machinery. The 
display is enclosed in plate glass so that every operation is clearly 
visible. Nearby is an exhibit of models showing the latest develop- 
ments in automatic merchandising machines. 

Grain is literally shot from guns in an action display of the manu- 
facture of a cereal breakfast food. A colored mammy making pan- 
cakes and a kilted Scotch lassie baking scones, demonstrate two uses 
of cereal products. 

Story of Spices 

At the top of the next exhibit is a huge reproduction of a bottle 
of salad dressing. Into it on one side march natives carrying spices, 
and out of it on the other side come mammoth salads, sandwiches 
and other foods that may be prepared with the dressing. Fifteen 
dioramas, cut into a map of the world, show where and how the 


spices are obtained. In a lounge at the back, pictures painted in 
oil on velour depict the story of spices and other foods. 

Maple sugar from tree to table is the subject of a display of maple 
sugar products. A scientific display shows the farmer how to test 
his soil for acidity or the presence of phosphates, so that he may 
know how to treat it to secure the maximum productivity. 


Efficient farming is the theme of the exhibit of the agricultural 
department of the University of Illinois. A forty-foot relief map 
shows a typical quarter section farm 100 years ago, 50 years ago, 
and today. The farm of a century ago included sixty-one acres of 
timber and twenty-one of swamp. Fifty years later, the farm had 
been ditch-drained but the soil was being worked out. In its present 
state the land is tile drained, the stream straightened, fields laid out 
in equal sizes for crop rotation, and buildings planned for business- 
like operation. 

Contrasting rows of small, feeble corn and tall, luxuriant plants 
show the benefit of fertilization. A model cattle feeding area is 
shown, with recommendations for the crops and space required for 
beef growing. An uneconomical, muddy hog field is contrasted with 
the grass pasture and clean buildings required to rear swine

MIDWAY. Amusement center of the Exposition, where brilliant 
color mingles with blaring sound to form a fitting background for 
the happy faces of carefree merrymakers. Here, along the wave- 
lapped shores of Lake Michigan, are gathered together all the time 
honored features of the carnival, modernized with myriad improve- 
ments from the laboratories of science and dressed in the latest 
creations of modern art. 

Here, too, are thrilling rides, "dangerous, daring and death defy- 
ing" if the seductive shouts of the barkers are to be believed. But 
every feature is equipped with the most modern safety devices. 


The Beach Midway 

tAt the entrance stand two Ferris Wheels. Nearby is the Forte 
Slide where mats are provided for the journey down a spiral cause- 
way around the outside of a towering cone. 

t Around the Auto Scooter we may bump others from their course 
and attempt to keep from being bumped ourselves. In King Solo- 
mon's Temple is a model of the original temple and a lecturer

explaining its marvels. Here are also housed the Mechanical Circus, 
a miniature three-ring circus, complete from elephants to clowns and 
all mechanically operated; and the Freak Animal Show, comprising 
some 30 animal monstrosities. 

flf you can hit a target with a baseball, you will drop the Swanee 
River Boys into a pool with a fierce-looking mechanical alligator. A 
Shooting Gallery with moving targets is near. 

tAt the Animal Fair, 500 lions, tigers, monkeys and other animals 
and reptiles are exhibited in their native settings. No bars interfere 
with your view of these jungle beasts, which are behind a wide moat. 
Frank ("Bring 'em back alive") Buck and a corps of native helpers 
will describe the animals. Many of them were actually captured 
by Mr. Buck, and have been seen in his motion pictures. 

f Children may guide the Winston Racer automobiles around a 
curving walled track. Near are the' galloping chargers and glittering 
chariots of the Carousel. 

Down Lost River 

f A trip down the Lost River takes us in an explorer's boat to the 
world of a million years ago. Through a waterfall we go straight 
into a mysterious jungle. The 80-foot brontosaurus is the first of 
a host of animated prehistoric animals we encounter during the 

fThe Torture Show exhibits man's ingenuity through the ages in 
devising ways of punishing his fellows. The World Beneath — an 
illusion show — takes us for an imaginary excursion into the bowels 
of the earth.

The Dutch Village 

yThe Bug Ride is a wavy trip inside a canvas caterpillar over a 
circular track. The Catapult, a flat ride, spins us around and around 
in our round basket car. The all-steel frame of the Cyclone Coaster 
insures perfect safety during its breath-taking dips. 

fin the Motordrome motorcyclists defy death by riding up the 
side of a steep wall. 


yDUTCH VILLAGE. Realm of windmills, dykes, tulips and 
canals. This reproduction of a typical Netherlands fishing village 
contains a large windmill in full operation, a canal running through 
the streets and a drawbridge such as is seen only in Holland. 

Visitors may first view a Holland farm house with its immaculately 
kept cow-stable opening into family living quarters. Here they can 
see trim tile-lined mangers for the cattle and appointments that seem 
good enough for human guests. 

Out of doors, the eye meets a riot of colors — rich blues, vivid 
greens and magenta, with red tile roofs and shutters of brilliant hue. 
Red-coated Edam cheeses are manufactured and marketed by vil- 
lagers in boats floating through the canals of the picturesque

fSTREETS OF SHANGHAI. Pagoda towers, eight stories high 
and painted in brilliant hues, mark the entrance to this colony of 
typical Chinese buildings of bright Mandarin red, jade green, loud 
Chinese yellow, blue and gold. 

The streets of shops and theaters are lighted by thousands of 
bright-colored Chinese lanterns. Within the shops are rare silks, 
jades, bronzes and porcelains, sent from San Francisco's "China- 


The Streets of Shanghai 
town." Visitors may watch a noodle factory in full operation and 
learn how bean sprouts, indispensable ingredient of Chinese cooking, 
are grown. 

Native merchants and craftsmen are seen at work. Every 
employee of the village is garbed in native costume to keep the 
Oriental atmosphere intact. 

An art gallery displays old Chinese masterpieces and a model of 
a temple to Confucius. In booths, Chinese artists will sketch por- 
traits of visitors.

U. S. GOVERNMENT BUILDING. Together with the connect- 
ing States building, the Government building is a striking example 
of the new architecture. Designed by Edward H. Bennett, the struc- 
ture consists of a central dome surrounded by three pylons repre- 
senting the three branches of government: Executive, Judicial and 

Here Uncle Sam reports to the public on what the Federal Gov- 
ernment is doing for its citizens. 


Used by Post Office Bandits 

Entering the building by the central ground floor entrance, we 
find the alcove of the Post Office Department on the left. Displayed 
statistics show its growth. Starting with 75 post offices in 1789, the 
number increased to 10,127 in 1833 and is 47,642 at this time. 

An enticing gold brick, worth — if genuine — $30,000, lies on a 
velvet cushion to show how the Post Office hunts down swindlers 
using the mails. Card painting and embroidery outfits sold by ''earn 
money at home" swindlers, and samples of form letters with which 
they refuse to accept any of the work done, are part of this instruc- 
tive display. 

Tragedy underlies the exhibit of quack remedies stamped out of 
existence by the Department. 

Machine Guns and Dead Letters 

There is a case of machine guns and revolvers with rogues' gallery 
portraits of mail-car bandits captured and convicted. Figurines of 
Christ on the cross between two 
thieves, all enclosed in a quart 
bottle, are part of a museum of 
strange articles found in pack- 
ages in the Dead Letter Office. 

The Great Seal of the United 
States, reproduced in colors, is 
the central figure of the State 
Department exhibit. A collec- 
tion of historic documents in- 
cludes the peace treaty with 
Great Britain signed in 1783, 
and the treaty with Germany. 

Three murals shown by the 
Office of Education portray the 
school of yesterday, today and 

tomorrow. ln thc Game Conservation Exhibit 




The Farmer's Foe 

Western yellow pine logs, four feet thick, with a quarter hewn 
out to form benches with backs, invite visitors to rest in the space 
of the National Parks Service. There we see a glacier — the Nisqually 
— on the side of Mt. Rainier in a lifelike diorama. 

A model of Boulder Dam in its mountain setting, shows surplus 
water from the lake rushing down through the dam's spillways and 
spurting out in jets into the canyon below. 

Baskets and trays, rugs, pottery and jewelry are shown in the 
Indian Affairs exhibit to illustrate the arts and crafts of the Indian 
school system. 

In the Hawaii exhibit is the entrance to a grass hut. Large cocoa- 
nuts are piled near a wooden mixing trough, polished glistening 
brown by use and with two grotesque carved heads for handles. 

Game Conservation 

Deer and wild fowl, in a natural forest background, illustrate 
game conservation. A model of a forest in a continuous rainstorm 
shows the great sponge formed by the earth and root mass under- 
ground preserving the water. 

The Department of Agriculture occupies a large space to exhibit 
the high lights of its important work. Before a natural size cornfield, 
with real stalks and ears, are grasshoppers so thick they hide the 
wood on the fence posts, ready to move in and destroy the crop. 

Soil chemistry, terracing and contour ploughing to control erosion, 
how to pack apples, food inspection, agricultural engineering, how to 
breed and feed animals, dairying, economics of marketing, price 
analysis, standards of products and management of income, are 
subjects of exhibits. 

Measure the Weather 

Stop at the weather map and try the apparatus on the table. 


Making Money 

Touch a button and lights show the direction of the wind while the 
anemometer records its force. Touch another button and read the 
intensity of the solar radiation at the moment. 

How the government helps its unemployed citizens in their search 
for work is demonstrated in a model office of the U. S. Employment 
Service, which was established in 1933. 

Here we see how the applications of unemployed men and women 
are handled, and the efforts made to find suitable jobs for them. 
The workings of a central clearing house through which each em- 
ployment office is kept informed of labor conditions in all parts of 
the country, are shown, as are the special veterans' and farm 
placement services. 

Other Department of Labor exhibits show how the department 
supervises alien immigration and naturalization, mediates labor dis- 
putes, collects and distributes information on all subjects connected 
with labor, and otherwise fosters the welfare of wage earners. 

Exhibits of the Children's Bureau show the government's activi- 
ties in behalf of child welfare, through supervision of orphanages 
and juvenile courts, control of employment of boys and girls, and 
studies of the causes and treatment of children's diseases. The 
Women's Bureau demonstrates its work. 


The Gatling Gun 

Brilliant blue and 
white panorama of pic- 
tures of merchant ves- 
sels in the Shipping 
Board exhibit is back- 
ground for the figures 
that 83.8 per cent of our 
foreign trade was car- 
ried under the American 
flag in 1833. In 1903 the 
proportion was down to 
9.6 per cent and now it 
is 34.7 per cent. 

The Veterans Admini- 
stration exhibits baskets, 
leather work, silver, ta- 
bleware, carvings and 
other work of patients in occupational therapy. Maps and statistics 
tell the story of the work. 

How Airplanes Are Tested 

Working model of the largest wind tunnel in the world, that at 
Langley Field, Virginia, which can test a full sized airplane, is in 
the show of the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics. A 
working model, twenty feet long, shows the operation of the 2,040 
foot tank at Langley Field used to test a plane's behaviour in water. 

Wood cuts of the Government Printing Office in 1861, when it was 
established by Congress, are contrasted with half-tone illustrations 
of its modern work-rooms and machinery today in the exhibit of this 
department. Displays of ink and papermaking, fine book binding 
and typography are shown. 

The U. S. Army exhibit is purely of peace projects of the Army 
Corps of Engineers. Diorama relief map of the bend of the Mis- 
sissippi river at Carruthersville, Mo., shows various types of embank- 
ment, concrete dikes, pile dikes, rip-rap bank and grassed levee. 

Large model of a lock dam on the Ohio river uses real water. A 
center of interest is a huge relief map of the proposed Nicaraugua 

Playful pink and green lizards, six inches to a foot long, scamper 
around a section of desert reproduced by the Smithsonian Institution. 

Rare volumes and Braille books for the blind are shown by the 
Library of Congress. 

The exhibit of the Bureau of Prisons simulates a prison cell, with 
bars and heavy doors enclosing its space. Models and photographs 
show how Uncle Sam cares for his involuntary guests. 


Crime Detection 
Finger-printing is a leading feature of the exhibit of the Bureau 
of Investigation — American equivalent of Scotland Yard. Apparatus 
used by the expert is shown. Changing figures like those on a giant 
speedometer show finger prints being added to the files in Wash- 
ington at an average rate of 
2,200 daily. An expert from the 
department i s taking finger 
prints at a desk. 

Opium layouts, pipes, scales, 
lamps and the ingenious ways 
dope peddlers and addicts have 
of concealing the drug are 
shown by the Bureau of Nar- 

How animals and birds carry 
diseases to humanity is shown 
by the Public Health Service. 
Rats — endemic typhus fever ; 
parrots — psittacosis; rabbits, 
woodchucks, chipmunks, grouse 
— Rocky Mountain spotted 
fever; these are some of the 

A modern 140-ton coin press, 
stamping every kind of coin 
issued by the U. S., is shown 
by the Bureau of the Mint, in 
comparison with a hand screw 
press used to make our first 
coins. The Bureau of Engrav- 
ing and Printing exhibits the 
old hand press and the modern 
electrical unit which prints 
U. S. Government Building Towers money, securities and stamps. 

United States Navy 
Sea power, decisive factor in wars from the time of the Greeks. 
is keynote of the Navy exhibit, given in a series of moving charts. 
A fleet of ship models showing the development of our navy, is 
led by the Bonhomme Richard, in which John Paul Jones took the 
Serapis. The U. S. S. Constitution is next, followed by the Hartford, 
flagship of Admiral Farragut, the Monitor and the Chicago of 1883, 
first cruiser of the new steel navy. Models of the modern types of 
cruiser, destroyer, submarine, airplane carrier and battleship are in 
the parade. 


Transparent photographs and moving pictures show battle prac- 
tice and airplane maneuvers, life of cadets at Annapolis, and the 
training of Navy recruits. 

Commanding items of the Marine Corps exhibit are a stand of 
flags famous in the annals of the corps and a case of citations 
received by the Marines during the Great War. 

Marine Corps operations around the world are shown by a relief 
map and moving pictures showing the Marines at their job in Haiti, 
China, Nicaragua, Cuba and other scenes of action. 

A diorama of a typical seaport in the Lighthouse Service exhibit 
shows the navigational aids in use by day and night. A series of 
lighthouse lenses includes the earliest type of bullseye lense, and the 
latest type Fresnel lense with its concentric prisms. 

Lights turned on and off by photo-electric cells mark the highest 
efficiency of the light beacon, but we are shown a still greater advance 
— radio beacons by which under any conditions of light, darkness 
or fog the shipmaster can get his exact position. 

Counting the Population 

At the Census Bureau space we see just what the population of 
the United States is at the moment we are standing there. It is 
registered on a giant dial which shows one added every thirty-seven 
seconds. There is a birth every fourteen seconds and a death every 
twenty-three seconds. One immigrant arrives every fourteen minutes 
and one emigrant leaves the country every five minutes. 

A flowing stream, stocked with fish, is in the back of the Fisheries 
Bureau exhibit. At either end of the stream are devices enabling 
fish to get over dams to spawn in a stream's head waters.

interpreted for the benefit of American business. 

Guiding Aerial Traffic 

Keeping a flying course by radio beam signals is illustrated in 
the Department of Commerce aeronautics exhibit. The visitor may 


On the Stairs of the U. S. Building 
manipulate a model plane on a theoretical air lane. 

A revolving airways beacon of 1,900,000 candlepower swings its 
overpowering ray. Weather reports are continually coming in on a 
teletypewriter. There are two cases of model planes. 

The Coast and Geodetic Survey illustrates its work by a diorama 
of a harbor in which the Survey is carrying on fifteen different chart- 
ing operations. 

At the end of the last hall we find the Bureau of Standards. Here 
are operations of interest to everybody. Different types of sole 
leather are tested for wear resistance against a revolving grindstone. 
Paint is tested for resistance to deterioration caused by water and 
light. Two model automobiles, mounted in a wind tunnel, demon- 
strate the amount of power wasted in overcoming wind resistance. 


STATES BUILDING. This great quadrangle, enclosing the Court 
of States, composes a series of exhibit halls in which are seen the 
exhibits which various states of the United States have sent to the 
Exposition. Also in the quadrangle is the exhibit of the Republic 
of Greece and a French exhibit. 

The Court of States is the scene of outdoor meetings, band con- 
certs and ceremonies. 

Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, New 
Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington and 
the city of Chicago are in the states' exhibits in which the displays 
of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are included. 


In the Florida Exhibit 


An adobe trading post, typical of the old Southwest, is the domi- 
nating feature of the Arizona exhibit. Here, against a background 
of rugs, pottery and baskets, novelties of copper and silver, petrified 
wood and cactus curios, Indian craftsmen are seen at work. A silver- 
smith hammers his metal into a setting for a blue turquoise. A potter 
moulds his clay into bowls and vases. A rug maker and a basket 
weaver demonstrate their skill, and a real singing cowboy completes 
the picture. 

Burnished copper ceiling shows Arizona's principal mineral. An 
eight-foot band of the same material circles the walls. In this band 
are set 36 transparencies of the scenic beauties of the state. On the 
upper portions of the walls are seven murals portraying Arizona's 
history, painted by Lon Megargee. 

Outside, at the rear of the exhibit hall, is a desert garden, where 
36 varieties of cactus may be seen growing in a desert setting. 


"Redwood Grove," center of the California exhibit, is approached 
through a twelve-foot arch through a redwood log. Between the 
redwood trunks of the grove are murals of California history and 
dioramas of summer and winter sports. 

Through another redwood trunk you go into the Spanish court 
where twenty-eight foot windows of one of the buildings reveal a 
diorama of Los Angeles. An amazing display of fruit is in the 

A little further on is another huge diorama — of San Francisco, 
showing the Golden Gate and Oakland bridges. The redwood and 
the pine associations have halls showing uses of their woods. In 
every available space is a diorama or an exhibit of fruit products. 


In The Court of States 


A Spanish court is here, its blue sky crossed by a flight of" 
white ibis. 

Dioramas of scenic spots, 15th century cannon, mission bells 
treasure chests and barnacle incrusted anchor from St. Augustine 
lead to a display of strange fruits. Papaya, like cantaloupe except 
that papayas grow on trees; Chinese star fruit, with shiny pink shells 
like shrimp; mangoes; white seporte, like crab apples; avocadoes 
and long green and white striped Chinese squash. 

In a garden adjoining the indoor exhibit are dozens of different 
kinds of palms; lilies float on a lily pool; orchids grow on old trees 
and stumps just as they do in the Everglades. A pair of tame pink 
ibis are allowed the run of the garden. 

With the better known citrus fruits: grapefruit, oranges, lemons 
and limes, is seen the calamondin, which is about the size of a lime, 
has a skin like a tangerine and is more acid than a lemon. 


Mocking birds singing amid the pink blossoms of a Georgia peach 
orchard greet the visitor to the exhibit of this state. From the rear, 
in a realistic cotton field, a quartette of darkies is heard singing old 
negro spirituals. 

The first gold mined and minted in the United States is part of an 
exhibit of marbles, clays and minerals. * A display of farm products 
includes a gigantic stalk of cotton, containing 710 perfect bolls. 

University of Georgia, Wesleyan College, the Georgia School of 
Technology and the Martha Berry school for mountain boys and 
girls cooperate in an educational exhibit. 


Paintings of Warm Springs show the home of President Roosevelt 
and the patients' pool. Other exhibits include a display of wild 
turkeys and other game, models of the Indian mounds at Macon, 
demonstrations of paper-making from Georgia pines and a display of 
textiles and other manufactured products of the state. 


Illinois has taken one of the large halls and entrances for a display 
of mineral, agricultural and industrial wealth, as well as its less 
commercial activities in the fields of public welfare and education. 

Exhibits of the University of Illinois occupy a large part of the 
space. A model of the university has for background a group of 
renderings and plans from the university's school of architecture. The 
school of engineering and the mathematical and chemical depart- 
ments are represented, along with some of the less technical phases 
of university life. 


The Missouri exhibit is set in a grove of slender tree trunks that 
go up to the two-story ceiling on which leaves are painted. The old 
times are brought back by a few sections of old "worm fence" beside 
a running stream. Near it is a Taney County pioneer log cabin. 

Painting of a simple cabin illustrates Missouri's first settlement 
in 1700. The first state capitol at Jefferson City is background for 
a river-front scene of slaves, overseers and merchants. 

Behind an antlered stag are views of woods and parks and a poster 
giving the game laws. A cavern with authentic stalactite and stalag- 
mite formations is part of an exhibit of minerals and mining. 

Bronze figures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn adorn a 
niche devoted to Mark Twain. A portrait of Eugene Field, born in 
St. Louis in 1850, hangs above a stanza from "Little Boy Blue." A 
bust of Dr. A. T. Sill, who founded osteopathy at Kirksville, is 

Work of the Mississippi Valley Committee: 

Work of the Mississippi Valley Committee is shown in an exhibit 
sponsored by the Department of the Interior of the U. S. Government. 


A crude adobe dwelling, typical Pueblo Indian adobe, is at one 
side of the New Mexico exhibit hall. At one end of the house a 
tapaste — overhead hay rack — shelters an old Spanish wagon with 
wooden wheels, a wooden plow, ox yoke and other crude implements. 

Inside, a Navajo woman weaves rugs on a hand loom; a Pueblo 
woman fashions pottery, and a Navajo silversmith moulds the metal 
with his crude tools. 

A two-story modern dwelling at the end of the hall shows how

architects have made use of the Pueblo style of building. In a 
natural display of lava-rock, potash deposits and white sands, cacti, 
chimisa brush and bunch grass are growing. 

On the floor in the center of the hall a Navajo sand painter drib- 
bles the naturally colored sands through his fingers to create Indian 
pictures. There is a display of prehistoric Indian relics and of 
swords, side arms and spurs worn by the Spanish conquistadors. 


The state's history is the subject of the Ohio exhibit. The entrance 
and hall are surrounded with mural paintings and you may study 
them seated at ease on long walnut settles. 

On the back of each settle, in front and behind, is lettered a terse 
paragraph from Ohio's story. La Salle took possession in the name 
of France in 1682. Celeron de Bienville buried six lead plates 
declaring "renewal of possession" along the Ohio and Miami rivers 
in 1749. The Underground Railroad. Simon Kenton forced six 
times to run the gauntlet by the Indians. 

U. S. Grant was born near Sandusky, O. Six other Ohio pres- 
idents whose busts look down on you went to the White House from 
this state. They are James A. Garfield, Rutherford B. Hayes, Ben- 
jamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft and War- 
ren G. Harding. 


Scenic beauties of the Columbia River Highway are a background 
of the Oregon exhibit. The state's great lumber and fisheries in- 
dustries and its fruit production are shown in a series of displays and 


mural decorations which stress the appeal of Oregon to the tourist 
traveler, the homeseeker and the investor. 


Native palms separate the government and commercial exhibits in 
hall occupied by Puerto Rico, which is decorated in Spanish style. 
In the governmental section the agricultural progress of the island is 
shown by exhibits of sugar cane, tobacco, coffee and native fruits 
and vegetables. Educational progress and the development of 
sanitation and disease control are illustrated. The construction of 
roads, power plants, public buildings and communications under 
government supervision is shown. 

Cigar makers demonstrate the manufacture of Puerto Rican cigars 
amid a display of linen suits, straw hats, citrus fruits, mahogany 
furniture, baskets, pottery and other native products. Lingerie and 
table linens display the fine needlework and drawn work for which 
Puerto Rican women are famed. 

*Native coffee and fresh cocoanut milk are served by Puerto Rican 
girls. A native orchestra will play native tunes. 


Across the rear of the South Dakota exhibit a cyclorama takes us 
on a swift trip about the state. Peaceful farm and water scenes are 
in contrast with the rugged scenery of the Bad Lands and the Black 

South Dakota's mining activities are represented by a 12-foot slab 
of polished marble and a display of minerals and semi-precious 
stones. Early-day placer mining is shown by a diorama. 

A model of Mount Rushmore shows the progress of the work on 
the gigantic memorial that Gutzon Borglum is carving into the 
mountain side. Sportsmen will be interested in the extensive exhibit 
of heads of deer, mountain sheep, buffalo, elk, and antelope. Game 
birds and fish are displayed and buffalo and animal hides are tacked 
to the walls. 


Smoky Mountain and other scenes of beauty and grandeur in 
Eastern Tennessee are shown in the state's picturesque exhibit. Of 
great interest at this time is the development shown as the result of 
the operations of the Tennessee Valley Authority in its power 
projects, new communities and creation of a new industrial and agri- 
cultural region. 


The Washington exhibit is devoted largely to a display of the 
state's many natural attractions. 

A specially lighted diorama of Rainier National Park, showing 
Emmons Glacier, largest in the United States, is a prominent feature. 


Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Walla Walla, the Yakima and Wenatchee 
valleys are some of the subjects of murals done in enlarged colored 

A relief map shows Puget Sound, the Olympic Peninsula and the 
Cascade Range. There is a model of the Grand Coulee Dam in the 
Columbia River Canyon, first unit of a 2,000,000 horse-power proj- 
ect on which the government is spending $63,000,000. 

A fir timber 28 feet long, 3>y 2 feet wide and zy 2 feet high is dis- 
played in an exhibit of Washington's most important industry, 
lumber. Specimens of ores illustrate the mineral wealth of the state. 


All wood-panelled in woods grown in the state is the West Virginia 
hall. The floor is red oak. Lower half of the walls is dark walnut and 
upper half Butternut or white-walnut. The ceiling is maple and chest- 
nut. Dioramas show the scenic beauties of the Blue Ridge. First 
battle of the Revolutionary War, fought at what is now Point Pleas- 
ant, W. Va., in 1774, is a mural subject. Another is the first land 
battle of the Civil War at Philippi in 1861. 


A house made of cocoanut leaves is set in a tropical garden in the 
center of the Virgin Islands exhibit. Palm trees twenty feet high, 
pineapples and other native plants growing along the banks of a 
blue pool reproduce a typical island scene. Wall maps and mural 
paintings give further views of these Caribbean islands that are the 
latest additions to Lmcle Sam's insular possesions. 

The reed work for which the islands are noted is demonstrated by 
native girls who weave the reeds into mats and baskets as we watch. 
Linens and lingerie show the fine needle work of the native women. 
Cigars, rums and cordials and liqueurs are shown with an exhibit of 
juices of native fruits, the pineapple, wild orange and guanabana. 
which has a flavor somewhat like that of a peach or apricot, are

SCIENCE BRIDGE. Crossing the lagoon at 16th street. 

ARMOUR: South from Science Bridge over the South Lagoon. 
The pier includes a circular restaurant, an open plaza and three 
large exhibit halls. 

A large mechanical map in the center of the first hall of the 
building illustrates how Armour and Company products are dis- 
tributed in the United States. In the second hall, exhibits of by- 
products show how residue materials, long considered waste, are 
utilized for many valuable products. Third hall is a home economics 
exhibit of the various kinds and uses of fresh and prepared meats. 
New processes in handling meat, particularly refrigeration, are 
shown. Giant murals cover the walls of each of the three halls. 

At the south end of the building is the solarium restaurant with a 
view of the lagoon. Beyond the glass circle of the restaurant, an' 
open plaza extends over the water, with chairs and benches and a 
boat landing. 

* Restaurant features Armour products.

pier with a brilliant modernistic restaurant, and dancing floor. Well 
known orchestras furnish music afternoon and evening for up-to-date 
floor shows and dancing by guests. Outdoor terraces above the 
lagoon have tables and chairs. 


HALL OF SOCIAL SCIENCE. Entrance to this building is ap- 
propriately at end of Science Bridge from the Hall of Science 
to the Island. Above the entrance you see four pylons decorated 
with symbolic figures inspired by Hindu mythology. Leo Friedlander 
is the sculptor. The figures from left to right represent: Fire, 
Light, Darkness and Storm. 

The struggle of knowledge to bring order to social life is the theme 
of the exhibits in the Hall of Social Science. 

"A City Dump" of the present day is an illustration of the records 
that civilizations leave for future ages. Here, in the cross section 
of the dump, you may see a horse-shoe, a high-boned corset, oil

lamps, an old typewriter, solid flatirons, cast-iron statuettes, high- 
buttoned women's shoes, a phonograph horn, an old Ford radiator, 
a broken cuspidor, old radio vacuum tubes. 

A reproduction of a Cro-Magnon cave in France, with the draw- 
ings and carvings left on the walls by the cave men, shows a further- 
back record of early culture. Reproduction of three ages of Indian 
mound-builders in America is shown by a cross section from a mound 
with skeletons buried at different levels. A relief map of the United 
States shows different aboriginal ways of life. 

Development of intelligence is shown by an exhibit beginning with 
comparative skulls of great apes and primitive men. Growth studies 
of the brain show changes in its size and power. A mural painting 
shows the population increase in three racial groups and the chances 
of each in length of life. 

Two American family groups show the transition from the home 
industries unit to the modern family. A long automobile in front 
of a de luxe apartment house is contrasted with a family group in 
a country door-yard. Children in an elaborate nursery are con- 
trasted with a pioneer family in a log house. Empty fashionable 
church is contrasted with a full old-time meeting house. Crowded 
movie theatre with a kissing scene on the screen is contrasted with 
a simple home dance. We see steel mill laborers contrasted with a 
farm group at the barnyard chores. 

In the education section comparative models show a log school 
house, a highly developed modern public school, an old-fashioned 
one-building academy and a modern university. Vocational educa- 
tion, special functions of the public school, technical training,

athletics, and special teaching of crippled and handicapped children 
are shown in a series of transparencies. Statistics of the diffusion of 
education and of its cost and value complete the story. 

A demonstration school, with pupils assigned from Chicago high 
schools and eighth grades will be given an eight weeks' course in 
social sciences. The afternoons will be devoted to field work in 
the Exposition. The school sessions will be broadcast dailv over 

Americanization results are depicted in dioramas. Progress of 
labor is shown by another series. We see the worker taking any 
job he can get, labor organization, strikes, women and children 
taking the men's places and finally the replacement of skilled hand- 
work by automatic machinery. President Roosevelt's "New Deal" 
is illustrated by a series of dramatic dioramas. 

Use of the short ballot, to give closer control of elected represen- 
tatives, is illustrated. 

A statistical chart of 100 years of social legislation, copies of old 
inhuman laws and an illustrated community-planning map introduce 
exhibits of social work in which 98 organizations cooperated. 

Pauperizing alms-giving is illustrated by an Elizabethan lord and 
his lady giving coins to a beggar at a church door. A more modern 
"Lady Bountiful" handing a basket of food to a starving family is 
next. Contrasting exhibits show modern case-work with jhe idea 
of preserving the worker's morale. Diorama of an old almshouse 
yard with children, aged paupers and insane cases herded together 
is background for an exhibit of scientific separation and humane 

Work of the Red Cross, social settlements, adjustment of immi- 
grants and the efforts of the Urban League for the welfare of negroes 
are shown. The abolition of crime-breeding slums, installation of 


factory recreation grounds, clinics, visiting nurses, health education 
and hospital social service are illustrated. 

The U. S. Department of Labor shows advance in legislation and 
other work for the welfare of employed women and children. Con- 
trast of the old and modern farm home is shown by the U. S. 
Department of Agriculture. 

Special research at the World's Fair to establish standards of the 
American type is being done by the Harvard Anthropometric Labora- 
tory. Many thousands of visitors to the exhibit have been weighed, 
measured, tested and questioned. Electric card sorting machinery 
classifies the records almost instantaneously. You may stop and 
have your record taken. 

Co-operative business, insurance, home-loans and philanthropies 
are shown by elaborate exhibits, moving pictures and dioramas.

Social Science Section includes a book store and exhibits of publishers 
of encyclopedias, dictionaries, text books, general literature and 
children's libraries. 


ELECTRICAL GROUP. Between the Hall of Social Science on 
the north and the Electrical Building on the south, stands Western 
Union Hall. The entire three-unit structure was designed by Ray- 
mond Hood. 

Electrical development during the last century has made a vast 
change in the lives of men. Exhibits epitomize the story of a 
century of electrical progress. 


WESTERN UNION HALL. Above the entrance, an heroic fig- 
ure of Electrical Communication rises from a dynamo to symbolize 
the Conquest of Time and Space. Inside, the many exhibits turn 
this symbol to fact by demonstrating the world-wide spread of 
today's electrical communication. 

Relics and reproductions of formerly used instruments lead us 
from the inventions of Henry in 1829, and Morse in 1835, through 
a century of telegraphic history to the high-speed landline and cable 
apparatus now in use. Other displays show the extent of telegraph 
and cable service around the globe. 

How a message from London is repeated in New York with less 
than a second's delay, is shown by two printing machines separated 
by a drawing of the ocean. As the operator in "London" presses a 
key, the signal is printed automatically on tape in the "New York" 
machine. The landline operator types it on the keyboard of an 
automatic telegraph printer, and a similar machine simultaneously 
prints the letters in the city to which the message supposedly is 

Illuminated Answers 

Visitors may touch a button before an illuminated map and see 
their own city light flash on while a dial tells the telegraph rate 
from Chicago. 

A "Magic Answer Board" replies to the questions the great ma- 
jority of people wish to ask. Touch a button at the question and 
the answer appears with illustrations on an illuminated screen. 

Visitors may open or ground the circuit in a model of the messen- 
ger call box system, which demonstrates how the calls go through in

spite of these impairments to the wires. A relief map shows the 
cable routes across the mountains and valleys of the ocean bottom. 

Transmitting eight messages simultaneously over a single wire is 
illustrated by colored electric lights moving across an eighteen-foot 
wall chart. The process is explained by a complete multiplex send- 
ing and receiving unit displayed in operation at the base of the map. 

What happens when lightning strikes a telegraph line is shown in 
a working model. When electrical flashes strike miniature telegraph 
wires, a protector diverts the electricity to the ground, safeguarding 
the wires and insuring uninterrupted service. 

How master clocks electrically synchronize more than 100,000 
clocks, is shown. The simplex automatic printer, used in branch 
telegraph offices and by large businesses, is displayed and explained. 

News and Stock Ticker 

Latest news happenings in all parts of the world are brought to 
visitors via a bulletin ticker. There is also a teleregister automatic 
quotation board, operated during market hours from New York. 
As rapidly as sales are reported on the Xew York Stock Exchange, 
operators touch keys in a central office, causing metal discs to 
revolve on the teleregister board, which shows the opening, high and 
last prices of each stock. 

x\utomatic fire alarms, sprinkler supervision, watchman super- 
vision and burglar alarms demonstrated in this exhibit, are actually 
hooked up and on the job, protecting the grounds and buildings of 
the Exposition. 


THE ELECTRICAL BUILDING, with its court, affords one of 
the most effective after-dark views in the Exposition. A background 
of seven towering cascades of blue gaseous tubing symbolizes the 
source of hydro-electric power. Beams from a horseshoe of search- 

T 97 ] 

lights on the roof meet and cross directly above the electric fountain 
in the center of the court, which is lighted from within. 

We enter the Electrical Building from the lagoon through the 
Water Gate, two pylons whose Aztec figures are symbolic of Light and 


In a large hall on our left, a score of devices explaining the mys- 
teries of sound transmission and reproduction, are shown with a 
display of phonographs and radios. 

How music can be translated into colors is demonstrated by the 
color organ, which lets us see, as well as hear, a musical program. 
Constructed on the combined principles of modern psychology and 
electronics, this novel machine feeds our eyes colors that affect our 
emotions in the same way as does the accompanying music. 

When the music is grave, melancholy and solemn, the colors are 
blue, violet and purple. Yellow, orange and red accompany the 
more lively, exciting and passionate strains. The intensity of the 
music regulates that of the colors, light notes being accompanied by 
pastel shades and loud, deep notes by vivid, brilliant hues. 

Another kind of translating is done by the cathode ray oscillo- 
graph, which turns the sound of our voices into thin, wavering beams 
of light. Amateur radio equipment, which we can operate, is

On a nearby counter a metal ring leaps into the air and remains 
suspended without any visible support. The secret is explained 
when an attendant turns off the electric current and the ring falls 
to the table. You can push a plunger into a solenoid cell, but you 
can't pull it out again — until the current is shut off. 

Theatre of Science 

A miracle show of late developments of science, explained in 
language we can all understand, is staged in a theatre. The voice 
of the atom is heard through a loud speaker when a Geiger counter 
detects the presence of radio-active materials. The stroboscope 
makes whirling objects seem to stand still so their motion can be 

An incandescent lamp is lighted without wire connections, and 
metal wool is made to glow and burn out by the inductotherm. 
Lamps are "shot on" by the light gun.

in pure science which have led to the development of practical 


Among the Electrical Exhibits 

electrical devices for home and industry. The place of the cathode 
ray oscillograph, which enables engineers to see sound, in the mak- 
ing of radio loud speakers, is shown with the newest types of 
receiving sets as results. 

Air conditioning equipment, an all-electric kitchen that talks about 
and demonstrates itself, an electric laundry, and new developments 
in industrial apparatus contribute to the story of electrical progress. 

The development of lighting, from age-old stone lamps to modern 
incandescent and gaseous tube lamps, is shown. Visitors may per- 
form tests to determine proper lighting for home and office. 

Across the way girls on three revolving stages demonstrate elec- 
trical kitchen devices for chopping, mixing, beating and stirring. 

Life-size copies of an automobile and a streamline, 110-mile per 
hour train demonstrate the uses of batteries in modern transporta- 
tion. Batteries for use in submarines, for lighting, and for telephone 
and telegraph operation are also shown. 

An exhibit of cut-away and operating models shows how motors 
work. What the user needs to know before hooking up his motor 
is explained. 

An electric clothes washing machine on a slowly revolving turn- 
table is the central feature of a display of washers. 

An operator at a loom is weaving a "remade" rug, a reversible 
rug made from old rugs, rags, and scraps. 

Gaseous Lighting 

On the wall of an exhibit of gaseous lighting, a large test tube 
shows the various gases that make up the air we breathe. An adjoin- 


ing thermometer shows 
the boiling point of 
each gas. Whenever a 
moving light on the 
thermometer touches 
the boiling point of one 
of these gases, its sec- 
tion of the test tube is 
illuminated. Various 
types of gaseous light- 
ing are demonstrated 
and a lecturer per- An Electrical Kitchen 

forms experiments with liquid air, from which the gases are taken. 

A Century of Fashion — 100 years of feminine styles — is sur- 
rounded by a display of modern sewing machines. Girls demonstrate 
the use of the machines in cut work, rug making and other plain 
and fancy sewing. 

A cabinet dishwasher, six feet long, designed to be built into a 
new or remodeled kitchen, is the central feature of a display of 
electric dishwashers, both built-in and portable. 

The story of electricity in the home is presented in a theatre at 
the end of the aisle. Crossing over, we meet a stream of cold air 
thrown out by a giant air conditioner, surrounded by a display of 
conditioners for use in homes, offices and factories. 

The chief sources of electrical energy are portrayed by a full- 
scale model of a steam turbine spindle overhead, and a glass-covered 
cross-section of a water-wheel generator under foot, both rotating. 
An operating model of the water-wheel generator generates current 
for its own illumination. 

Working models of machinery for factory, mill and mine are 
shown. A kitchen and laundry contain modern home electric appli- 
ances. "Black light" from infra-red and ultra-violet lamps is 
demonstrated in a dark room. A giant thermionic tube explains the 
workings of the tubes in our radios. 

Science Demonstrations 

On the east balcony we find a series of demonstrations. Here we 
may operate devices that illustrate the principles of many modern 
scientific developments. Lecturers show us the stroboscope, and 
demonstrate the focusing of radio waves into a beam for secret 

A transmitting station broadcasts enough power to operate a motor 
and to light bulbs that we hold in our hands. A battery of con- 
cealed lights paints the wall above us in ever-changing color. An 
illuminated tower presents in silhouette the history of progress in 
lighting, transportation and machinery. 


From the Balcony 

We cross the bridge to an exhibit of the gathering and harnessing 
of electric power. A diorama 92 feet wide — nearly three times the 
width of the average theatre stage — shows how electric power is 
produced and distributed. 

This diorama is an animated scene with changing lights, running 
streams, spinning turbines and the movement of busy life. Recorded 
voice accompaniment explains its features. A power plant at a 
mountain foot shows the utilization of the force of a swift mountain 
stream, while a similar plant on the plain illustrates use of the 
greater volume but slower motion of a river. As night falls, city 
buildings and homes light up and shadowy streets become paths of 

The turbo-generator, greatest producer of force ever invented by 
man, is shown by a working model and by a large size section with 
wheels and rotor fully exposed. 

Uses of electricity in home, school, farm, hospital and factory are 
shown. A marionette show in a theatre depicts scenes showing the 
place of electricity in the home. 

Home Exhibits 

Continuing along the second floor we come to a series of murals 
depicting the washing and ironing of clothes in different lands and 


times. Peasant women pound- 
ing their wash on the rocks of a 
stream seem hardly more out 
of date than an American 
housewife of 1900, bent over a 
scrubbing board. A Chinese 
iron and an early model electric 
clothes washing machine used 
in the home of Thomas A. Edi- 
son are shown with a display of 
modern washers and ironers. 

How electric refrigerators, 
lamps, dial phones and other 
home appliances cause static in 
our radios, and how this can be 
eliminated by line filters, is the 
subject of an exhibit. 

Every step of the construc- 
tion and testing of a custom- 
built radio receiver is shown in 
an exhibit of models in various 
stages of construction, movies 
made in the radio laboratories, and completed sets. 

An exhibit of home and automotive appliances includes a demon- 
stration of electric refrigeration in a model kitchen, a dramatic pres- 
entation of 'round-the-world radio reception, and a display of 
speedometers, fuel pumps and other automobile accessories. 

f Television Exhibits Theatre, seating 250, presents short television 
skits and televises actors and members of the audience. Adjoining 
the theatre visitors may carry on two-way television conversations 
between booths, each talker being visible to the other. 

A lounge is maintained by one of the broadcasting networks. 

The Board of Local Improvements of the City of Chicago exhibits 
a model of the proposed Chicago subway.

MINIATURE ROOMS, by Mrs. James Ward Thome: On the 
lagoon side near the water gate to the Electrical Building. The 
exhibit is a gallery of 24 miniature rooms of various countries and 
periods. The rooms are from 25 to 36 inches long, and from 18 to 
20 inches deep. Real materials are used. Spanish and Italian lamps, 
grilles and screens are iron. Furniture is carved wood covered with 
real fabrics. Lighting fixtures are brass and crystal, rugs are real 
pieces of Aubusson and petit point. 


Seven American rooms range from Colonial times to the present 
day. Other rooms include: a Brittany kitchen, a modern entrance 
hall to a fine home, French Louis XVI bedroom and dining room, 
French Empire salon, Early English library, Mid-Victorian parlor, 
a Venetian Rococo salon, a dining hall for the Davanzanti palace 
in Florence, Italy, a Spanish baroque bedroom and a Spanish vaulted 
hall of the 17th century. 


yCRYSTAL HOUSE: This all-glass and steel house is admit- 
tedly experimental, to test the reactions of visitors to the Exposition 
to a house that entirely upsets the conventional ideas of a home. 

The house is built on a steel frame. Outside walls are of glass. 
Colored and polished glass is used for walls of living rooms and bath- 
room. Glass that admits light but cannot be seen through is used 
for the outside walls of the ground floor. There are no closets. 
Wardrobes, easily cleaned, are substituted. There are no corners to 
harbor dust or vermin. There are no windows. All the air comes 
in through the conditioning plant. Roofs are terraces to be lived 
on. Artificial lighting is almost entirely with portable lamps. Light 
plugs are everywhere along the walls. All the trim is metal. The 
kitchen is completely electrified. 

Furnishing of the Crystal House is modernistic pieces in polished 
metal and rare woods. The ground floor contains garage, cooling 
and heating unit room, laundry and entrance hall. Second floor — 
combination living and dining room and kitchen. Third floor — two 
bedrooms and two baths. 

The Crystal House is erected by Modern Houses, Inc. 


f ENCHANTED ISLAND: This is the children's playground of 
the Exposition. Games, entertainment with wholesome thrills, out- 
door and indoor play under trained supervision, make this a place 
of dreams come true for children. There are fairy spectacles and 
sports for children of all ages. Here they may have healthful enter- 
tainment in fascinating enjoyments that are devised with every 
care for their wellbeing. 

The Magic Mountain has an encircling moat, thirty inches deep, 
around which children may take motor-boat rides. Fairy Castle is 
at the top and they may come down by the safe but thrilling slide. 

In the Fountain Cascades and play garden, the fountain is made 
by a ring of firemen playing hoses on a burning building, the fire 
being simulated by electrical effects inside. Water from the hoses 
flows clown a series of cascades through a garden in which are 
free rides and swings for the children. 



Where Children's Dreams Come True 

The Round the World Flyers is an airplane ride. Children circle 
safely, each strapped in a miniature airplane and playing with the 
controls. The course is around a thirty-foot globe on which is a 
map of the northern hemisphere. 

Adventure Land is a new entertainment for children, a play house 
of the picture-book world — a world of brownies, fairies, laughing 

[ 105 ] 

trees, a cave of the winds, a gingerbread house and a funny, kindly 
witch in a quaint little house with her cat and broom and pointed 
cap. The Mother Goose stories are illustrated by characters and 

Animated cartoons and illustrations are seen in the Buck Rogers 

There are five-minute shows all day long in the Punch and Judy 

The Hedge Maze is a labyrinth of double hedges that children 
may go into and try to find their way to the end, where a free merry- 
go-round ride awaits those who solve the puzzle. There is an upper 
path from which adults may watch. 

Pony Rides 

The western pony ride is made interesting by a log bridge, a 
"canyon" and an extended trip out and back over a "trail" with real 
western atmosphere. There are "ranch" surroundings and cowboy 

Cowboy log cabins and Indian teepees are playhouses that carry 
on the adventure. 

Live ponies, well-trained and safe, are features of other enter- 
tainments. Riding at the ring with a chance for a prize of honor, 
is one of them. Pony-cart rides for smaller children will please them 
almost as much. 

The toy animal zoo has an array of fantastic animal toys with 
genuine fur. 

Artists will cut silhouettes of children and make pastel, oil and 
crayon portraits of them from life. 

Thrill of driving in an automobile race will be enjoyed by the 
older boys and girls. 

Children's Theatre 

In the beautiful Children's Theatre, the Junior League gives a 
series of plays, including many new ones and the old ones of which 
children never tire. There are marionette shows, pet shows, pan- 
tomimes and dances. 

The Merry-Go-Round, the automobile course, the Auto Skooter, 
in which the children cavort around the course, bumping each other 
gaily in protected miniature cars. The Ferris Wheel and the Marble 
House await their little friends. The Giant Coaster Boy looks down 
from his thirty-five foot coaster wagon on the crowds of children 
coming in. Girls delight in the doll show. 

All the time around its journeys puffs the miniature railway. The 
tiny train with its real locomotive pulling a string of passenger cars 
loaded with children, one of them ecstatically pulling the bell rope, 
is a picture of happiness.

war with the Moorish conquerors. 

Old houses which have witnessed the sovereignty of the Moors 
and looked down on the fierce street fighting from door to door 
during the war which ended in their expulsion from the European 
continent are reproduced in the Spanish Village. The castles date 
from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. 

In the shops along the picturesque streets natives of various 
Spanish provinces are seen at their occupations. The peculiar 
characteristics of the Spanish peoples, their dignity and courtesy 
which never desert them, either in rags or grandeur, are seen in this 
village which gives the visitor the special atmosphere of Spain. 
Native arts and crafts, many of them the heritage of the Moorish 
occupancy, are seen in the shops.

tall, illuminated to the top. Its glowing light will be seen for miles 
over the lake. The thirty buildings in the village range from the 
simplest thatched cottages to the Hall with its carved roof-beam 
decorated with dragon heads at the ends. 

Among the historical exhibits is the Book of Kells, oldest history 
known to Irish literature. It is an illuminated copy of gospels, in 
Latin, and contains also Irish records, dating back to the eighth 
century. A twelfth century Irish harp is another ancient exhibit. 

Modern Irish industry is shown by weavers demonstrating the 
making of Irish linen, poplin and laces in contrast with the old 
handloom methods. Jaunting cars and shamrocks are seen around 
the village green, where dances and folk songs are given by native 
Irish entertainers to the music of the bagpipe and the harp brought 
from Ireland.

fOLD FORT DEARBORN. A reproduction of the fort and 
stockade that was Chicago's first permanent settlement. 

The parade ground flag bears the fifteen stars and stripes of 1812. 
Guides are in the uniforms of 1812. Around you are the fort's well 
and oaken bucket, outdoor fireplace and soap kettle, the grist mill, 
powder magazine, barracks, Indian trading post and block houses. 
Plans made by Captain John Whistler for the original fort were 
obtained from the U. S. War Department and followed exactly in 
the reconstruction. 

In the living rooms of the fort are seen the furnishings and equip- 
ment as they were originally. Here are hand-made chairs, hand- 
hewn benches, spinning wheels, warming pans for the century-old 
beds and children's trundle beds that were pushed under the big beds 
in the daytime, open fireplaces, with long-handled frying pans, spits 
and big iron kettles, wooden meat grinder, horn lanterns, and iron 
candle sticks, maple-wood churn and dough-tray, big as a baby's 
crib. Flint-lock rifles hang on the walls with skins of animals. 

Indian Trading Post 

The store and trading post shows its stock of jerked beef, corn- 
meal, calico, peltries, knives and blankets Campaign equipment of 


the American army 
officer of the period, 
including his boot 
jacks, is shown. 
Brass cannon 
brought to the fort 
in 1804 are the 
armament of block 
houses. Two of the 
cannon were made 
in Paris in 1793. 
The cannon are a

loan from the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, N. Y. The 
Daughters of the American Revolution, the American Legion, the 
Chicago Historical Society, the Smithsonian Institution and the U. S. 
Army and Navy have cooperated in the loans of the objects in 
the collections. 

Historic documents tell the story of the old fort and of the mas- 
sacre. Among them is a facsimile of the letter from General Wil- 
liam Hull to Captain Heald, commander of the garrison, ordering 
the evacuation of the fort, which resulted in the massacre of 60 men 
and children, and the capture of the survivors. 

PENLAND WEAVERS. A Carolina mountain cabin in which 
mountaineer weavers are making homespun cloth, rugs and coverlets, 
hand-hammered pewter ware and hand-made pottery. 


fBLACK FOREST VILLAGE. A glimpse of German country 
life, in the Black Forest in winter is given in the Black Forest Vil- 
lage. Snow is banked on cottages and chalet roofs. Icicles hanging 
from the eaves, frozen mill pond and wintry background form the 
scene which is given verity by the buildings being cooled by an air 
conditioning plant. 


The Black Forest Village 

Ice skating exhibitions are given continuously on the mill poncl. 
Surrounding the mill pond are picturesque village houses and shops 
in which are carried on German home industries. You see cuckoo 
clocks made, canes carved and a village blacksmith hammering out 
small useful articles. Home manufacture of Kirsch is one of the 
village activities. German orchestra and strolling musicians give 
the musical entertainment. The villagers are in the quaint German 
mountaineer costumes.

fABRAHAM LINCOLN GROUP. Lincoln's early life and strug- 
gles are depicted in reproductions of his birthplace near Hodgen- 
ville, Kentucky, the second Lincoln family home at Little Pigeon 
Creek, Indiana, his general store at New Salem, 111., the Rutledge 
Tavern in New Salem, and the Wigwam in Chicago where he was 
first nominated for the Presidency. 

Relics of Lincoln's early clays have for background an authentic 
collection of pioneer furniture and utensils of the period. In the 
Lincoln rooms are seen hand-made chairs and tables, pioneer wood- 
working and farming tools, gourd clippers, meat grinders, kraut 
presses, sausage stuffers, a loom for weaving homespun cloth, a bar- 
rel made from a hollowed sycamore tree, wool and flax carders and 


Abraham Lincoln's Birthplace — Reproduction 

spinning wheels. Rare early daguerreotypes show Lincoln when he 
was fighting his way for recognition in Illinois politics. 

Valuable additions to the Lincoln relics are the contributions of 
descendants of Henry Onstott, who ran a copper shop in New Salem, 
and in whose home Lincoln once lived. The Onstott collection 
includes the hammer Lincoln used to drive stakes when he was a 
surveyor, a small trunk, articles from the Lincoln-Berry store and 
fire tongs from the Rutledge Tavern. 

Old Cabins Brought to Fair 

The birthplace is represented by an original log cabin found 
standing in southern Illinois. It was taken down and transported 
bodily to the Exposition. Red clay from Hodgenville, Ky., was 
shipped to the Exposition to chink the log walls and make the beaten 
clay floor. The Indiana cabin is built from parts of century-old 
cabins found near the original site of the Lincoln home. 

Rutledge Tavern is reproduced by the same methods. It was in 
the original tavern that Lincoln met and courted Ann Rutledge in 
their tragic romance. The Lincoln store, which he operated with his 
partner William Berry, is built, like the original, of weatherbeaten 
finished timber. The Wigwam is a reproduction, reduced three- 
fifths in size.

THE NEW possibilities of the ideal small house are demon- 
strated at the Exposition in the Home and Industrial Arts 
section, by a group of completely finished, furnished and equipped 
homes, ready to live in. The new methods of building with new 
materials and with prefabricated units for rapidity and economy of 
construction, are shown. 

The new ideas in furnishing, decoration and home planning give 
a mine of ideas to the home maker. You see the latest, most 
original uses of new types of furniture. 


GENERAL HOUSES, Inc. An all-steel house, built of steel-panel 
units, includes five rooms and built-in garage. Insulation of the 
ready-made, pressed-steel panels is declared to be equal to 24 inches 
of brick. The interior walls are of finished insulation board. Exte- 
rior finish is paint. The house is furnished and decorated to show 
the practical uses of new materials and conveniences. 

One of the rooms in the house is an office-study, emphasizing the 
useful character of the design. Full-length landscape windows are 
used in the living room. 

The decoration and furnishing are in keeping with the modern 
spirit, using combination metal and wood pieces. The general idea 
of the furnishing is functional. 

An exhibit of scale models shows the variety of design possible 
with all-steel construction. Principles of steel-panel building are 
shown by samples of panels and joints. 


NEW WOOD PRODUCT. This house is built on a wood frame to 
illustrate the use of Masonite Presdwood for exterior and interior. 
It is a modern bungalow type with two bedrooms, bath and kitchen 
on the first floor, in addition to the living-dining room. Upstairs is 
a room that may be used for a study, games room or bedroom, 
opening on a spacious living roof deck, with another deck fitted as 
a children's play yard. 

Equipment of the house demonstrates the modern labor-saving 
devices, including air conditioning. The furnishing and decoration 
are designed to show the possibility of the owner of such a home 
moving into it without having to discard all his present furniture to 
make room for an entirely new interior scheme. The living room 
is modern in treatment, but one bedroom is in classical style and the 
other, Empire-Colonial, demonstrating that all these styles are 
adaptable to the house in combination. 

[127 1 

[ 128 ] 


NEW STONE PRODUCT. Demonstrates the use for exterior 
and interior of Rostone, a product of pressed stone with steel bolts 
cast into the slabs for attachment to the steel frame of the 
house. It is cast in standard size slabs and is capable of various 
color effects and high polish if desired. Colored Rostone is used 
to pave the roof deck, the floor of the entrance hall, and for parts of 
the living room walls. The house has all the living quarters on the 
ground floor, except the master's bedroom which opens on the roof. 

The interior decoration and furnishing are modern, but without 
bizzare innovations, and are planned to represent a livable home that 
can be equipped at moderate price. 


LUMBER HOUSE is built in this group of homes to demonstrate 
the beauty and assert the place of all-lumber construction. 

Representative American woods are used throughout the interior. 
Ceilings are Douglas fir, cypress and birch. The floors are oak, 
maple and southern pine. The sash and frames are Ponderosa pine. 

Walls of the living room and dining room are panelled in oak and 
birch, which are used also in the master's bedroom. Wide, knotty- 
pine boards are used lengthwise on the walls of the boy's bedroom- 
study. The kitchen has white maple smooth walls and floor. 

The Lumber House is furnished and decorated on a budget plan 
prepared after a national survey of incomes of small families. The 
furnishing is divided into three classes: Essentials, for which $1,000 
is allowed; Conveniences, $400; and Luxuries, $400. 


BRICK HOUSE. Xot only brick exterior but brick walls, floors, 
stairways and porches are exhibited by this house. 

This is the first time this type of construction has been used in 
a house, although it has been applied to bridges. By means of steel 
rods embedded in the mortar, every form of overhang, beams or 
floorspans possible with reinforced concrete or steel, may be achieved. 

Ground plan is an irregular hexagon. On the first floor the front 
half is cut away for a driveway under the second floor porch. Entry, 
laundry and playroom are on the ground level. Brick stairway 
ascends to the large living-dining room which, with the kitchen, 
occupies the entire second floor. 

The exterior is painted white. The interior walls are plastered 
and decorated. Floors of the bedrooms are covered with flooring 
material. Those of the living room and other parts of the house are 
the natural brick, ground smooth and polished. 

W'ith the complete, scientific, labor-saving equipment, the furniture 
and decoration are in present-day style that is home-like. 



FLORIDA HOUSE. Modernistic luxury in a design adapted to 
the unconventional freedom of living largely outdoors is shown in 
this house, not built to meet a budget but to present an ideal. 

Spaciousness and freedom, with a minimum of household labor, 
is the object. From the front you enter a two-story living room 
with a ceiling-high studio window on that side, and on the left, a 
polished aluminum open stairway leading to the upper floor. The 
living room opens to the dining room on one side, and on the other, 
to a loggia overlooking the lake. The bathroom is a large, square 
room with plate glass partitions between the showers and the sunken 
tub. All the roof, except over the living room, is given to wide deck 
terraces to which one steps from the airy bedrooms. 

Interior decoration is in modern Victorian style, with specially 
designed furniture, and makes use of wall papers, appropriate 
drapery fabrics, and special indoor lighting effects. 


fHOUSE OF TOMORROW. This glass and steel house is cir- 
cular, like three drums piled one upon another, the top drum being 
the solarium, surrounded by a circular roof terrace. 

Living part of the house is all windows, but none of it opens. The 
air inside is all conditioned, purified and circulated by ducts. Every- 
thing is water and fire-proof without corners or dust catchers. Floor 
of the living story is walnut blocks, bakelite finished. 

On the ground floor is a workshop, hangar and laundry. Beyond 
is a recreation room and a miniature bar. 

The electric kitchen is all stainless metal, porcelain and glass. 
Floor of the master's bedroom is end-block pine. Floor of the child's 
room is rubber tile. White carrara glass walls, white porcelain 
equipment and rose-colored rubber tile floor are the bathroom 

Interior decoration and furniture are strikingly modern, in keeping 
with the unusual character of the house. 


SOUTHERN CYPRESS. Not planned for living but to demon- 
strate the various uses of cypress in building and decoration, 
this charming chalet is decorative in itself, in its garden setting. 
Different treatments of cypress for construction are shown. 

In the garden is a cypress workshop in which demonstrations are 
given of carving quaint bird and animal heads from cypress "knees." 


STEEL FRAMED. A new type of steel construction is used in 
this home. The frame members are made of two channels with 
grooved backs welded or riveted together. Nails driven between 
the channels follow the lengthwise grooves. 

[ 130 ] 

Linoleum is used on the floors and linoleum products for the laundry 
and bathroom walls. 

The two bedrooms are on the ground floor. Most of the roof deck 
is given to lounge and recreation space surrounding the recreation 
room, which has a large solarium alcove. 

The interior decoration and furnishings are in modernized tradi- 
tional style with the accent on livability. 

Garden Home 
STRANSTEEL GARDEN HOME, is a companion to the 
Stransteel house and is built in the same construction. The nouse is 
designed in the Cape Cod tradition and is planned for enlargement, 
if necessary, to grow with the family. 


FRAMELESS HOUSE. An example of the new construction 
of a frameless, all-steel house built of factory-made units. The 
house is two-story, attractive in its classically simple lines, and 
exterior of dull gloss enamel. 

Walls and floors are made of box-like units ready fabricated at 
the steel mills. The wall units are house high, with door and window 
frames welded in place. At the first floor ceiling line, a metal conduit 
welded on serves for a continuous floor bracket. 

To the inside walls a layer of insulation is applied, and over it, 
two coats of plaster. The ceilings are finished in acoustical tile. 

In the interior decoration and furnishing, practical livability and 
attractiveness within moderate price range are stressed. 

Guest Cottage 
GARDEN COTTAGE, that may be built in connection with a 
larger house for overflow of guests, is in the garden, adjoining. 


WORLD'S FAIR POST of the American Legion is to be estab- 
lished at this Exposition headquarters for Legionnaires. Exhibits 
of Legion activities and the plans for the welcome of visiting veterans 
are in charge of the American Legion Century of Progress Committee. 

GLASS BLOCK BUILDING and tower, built by the Owens-Illi- 
nois Glass Company of this new structural material. The glass blocks 
are hollow and thus insulate against heat and cold. Decorative 
effect of the colors is seen by daylight inside the building and in 
brilliant illumination effects. 

A collection of historical glassware and decorative pieces, lent by 
the Toledo (Ohio) Museum of Art, is seen in the exhibit hall. 

Miniature glass plant in operation shows the complete process of 
glass manufacture. The industrial exhibits include glass-wool filters

and models showing their application. Home air-cleansing equip- 
ment, using glass-wool filter in connection with heating equipment, 
is demonstrated. Coffee vacuum jars, tamper-proof oil bottles, other 
types of bottles and preserving jars are shown. 

Use of glass block construction is illustrated by models of resi- 
dences, industrial plants, stores, and filling stations, in natural 
settings of streets and trees. 


POTTERY FACTORY. Exhibit of art pottery and group of 
Southwestern Indian potters at work. The demonstration of primi- 
tive and modern methods of making pottery is the exhibit of the 
Haeger Potteries, Inc., of Dundee, Illinois. 

A family group of San Ildefonso Indians, among the finest pot- 
tery makers of the North American primitives, are in native adobe 
huts in the pottery exhibit. 

A modern plant shows mechanical mixers at work. "Throwers" 
spin clays into shapes on pottery wheels; artists hand-decorate the 
dried shapes. A modern rotary kiln, 24 feet in diameter, automati- 
cally fires 6,000 pieces a day. 

The newly manufactured pieces are exhibited with fine show 
pieces from various parts of the world. Three ultra-modern rooms, 
a living room, a bedroom and a dining room, illustrate the use of 
the art pottery and decorations. 

*VICTOR VIENNA GARDEN CAFE. Restaurant a la carte, 
featuring Viennese and Austrian dishes. Indoor dining room and 
outdoor garden. Also cafeteria. Orchestra. Floor shows 9 p. m. 
to closing. Dancing by guests 6:30 p. m. to closing. 



HOME PLANNING HALL. Here are seen exhibits of direct 
application to the problems and wishes of modern home planners. 

Three model all-metal kitchens show the use of stainless, glitter- 
ing metal for sinks, drain boards, table tops and other equipment. 
Each kitchen exhibits a different plan for efficient construction. 

Scientific tests of various materials and household machines are 
shown by fact-finding research specialists. Here you see tests ap- 
plied to enamel wares to ascertain their resistance to chipping, to 
staining and to heat. House paints are given what are described as 
accelerated weather tests. Intense, concentrated light rays in which 
the destructive rays are a large element, are turned on the samples. 

By continuous bending under weights the test of accelerated wear 
is given to spring steel furniture. Methods of refrigeration are tested 
and explained. Wire fencing is given a metallurgical test. Efficiency 
of vacuum cleaners is tested. Rugs are given accelerated tests. 

Test Yourself 

Nearby you may test yourself — that is, your physical condition 
as evidenced by your resistance to fatigue — on a "wobble machine.' 
You stand on a small, trembling platform which registers how 
steadily you hold yourself. This fatigue test is in an exhibit of inner 
spring mattresses. 

Pumps for water circulation in rural homes and other buildings 
are shown, with an exhibit of oil-burning heating equipment. With 
this exhibit is a show of toy machines for children. 

A giant mixing machine for mayonnaises and other foods is seen 
in operation. There are exhibits of various types of mixers, vacuum 
cleaners, faucets and shower bath equipment and of cast aluminum 
kitchenware. An exhibit tells the story of air conditioning and hot 
air heating. Washing machines are seen in a demonstration. 


An extensive exhibit is devoted to the story of gas in the home. 
A domestic science instructor makes cookies on a gas stove to illus- 
trate her lecture on the use of gas for cooking. Model kitchens 
illustrate the efficient planning of the space for labor saving. 

Gas ranges, water heaters and house heating equipment are shown. 
Mechanics give a demonstration of the ease with which gas heating 
apparatus is installed in any furnace. 

An automatic coal stoker in operation shows the apparatus in 
action, firing a furnace. A furnace has part of one side cut away to 
show the working parts of the coal stoker as they operate. A model 
coal tipple in action shows how coal is loaded into freight cars.

A marionette show, operated by professional puppet-show artists, 
gives a performance in a theatre connected with an exhibit in which 
girls in costume demonstrate uses of cleaning powder. 

Construction of paint brushes is shown. An exhibit of gas-operated 
refrigerators shows how the freezing element is actuated by a tiny 
gas flame. 

On the upper floor of Home Planning Hall you will find an exhibit 
of rugs shown by an ingenious device. 

The house furnishing exhibits on this floor are divided into sec- 
tions. On one side you see wares applicable to kitchen use, equip- 
ment, pressure cookers, jelly molds, utensils and cabinets. On the 
other side are furnishings, fine displays of glassware, redwood gift- 
ware, clocks and other idea-giving exhibits. 


A 45-FOOT SHOWER bath is a refreshing attraction. The 
shower is a giant reproduction of the company's shower bath equip- 
ment. At the base of the tower is seen, in contrast, a bathroom 
used in 1893. Here, also, is seen a modern, de luxe bathroom. 

Display of antique and historical plumbing fixtures includes a 
"chaise longue" French bath tub of 100 years ago, a French lavatory 
150 years old, a bath tub shaped like a hat that was in vogue in this 
country after the war between the states, and a bath tub of the type 
used by Queen Victoria in England.

The Ford Building 


FORD BUILDING. The dome, 200 feet in diameter, represents 
the giant cogs of a set of gear wheels. The building embodies new 
principles of electric illumination, both for lighting and for spec- 
tacular effects. Nearly four acres of floor space are devoted to 
educational and industrial exhibits. Albert Kahn of Detroit is the 

Main entrance is through the rotunda. Here 67 vehicles of 
different eras show the development of wheeled vehicles from the 
Egyptian chariot to the motor car of today. Around the rotunda- 
concourse is a series of photo murals 20 feet high and 600 feet long. 

Middle of the rotunda is the Court of the World, open to the 
sky. An electrically revolved globe 20 feet in diameter is in the 

Looking upward at night, the visitor gazes into a weaving mass 
of colored clouds of ceaselessly changing patterns, from which rises 
an enormous pillar of clear, white light that under proper atmos- 
pheric conditions attains the height of one mile. Twenty-four 
38-inch projectors of 5000 watts are used to create the pillar of light. 

Ford Museum 

Ford Museum occupies the south wing of the building. Among 
other relics, the museum contains Mr. Ford's first work-shop and 
his first automobile, built in 1893. An old-time machine shop dem- 
onstrates that mechanical progress is dependent on machine 

The north wing, known as Industrial Hall, is 585 feet long by 
213 feet wide. It houses upward of forty industrial exhibits. Raw 


materials such as copper, iron, zinc, aluminum, rubber, cotton and 
wool are carried through the actual stages of manufacture to finished 
parts for motor cars. This display, as a whole, demonstrates 
the dependence of industry upon the soil. 

Especially interesting to electrical engineers is the lighting of 
Industrial Hall. A combination of high-pressure mercury tubes and 
lamps gives a light that attains the clarity of 80% daylight at noon 
of a clear day. 

The system of sound amplification, both within the building and 
without, employs a total of 289 master loud-speakers and 223 
auxiliary speakers. No speaker is of greater than three watts volume, 
so that none amplifies more loudly than a conversational tone. Four 
separate programs might be broadcast in the building simultaneously 
without one interfering with any other. 

Farm Exhibits 

To the rear of the south wing of the main building is a weather- 
beaten barn which was transported to Chicago from the Ford home- 
stead at Dearborn where it was built the year that Henry Ford 
was born. In this barn is an exhibit of Henry Ford's solution of our 
farm problem. An improved machine for the processing of soybeans 
is shown in operation. The practical possibilities for profit in this 
crop are pointed out. Nearby a small machine shop, wherein parts 
for cars are being made, demonstrate how the farmer may become a 
manufacturer as well as a food grower. 

"Roads of the World" 

Across from the Ford Building, on the lake front, is Ford Gardens. 
Here are the "Roads of the World." A roadway reproduces, in 
nineteen separate sections, examples of world-famous highways from 
the earliest Roman and Chinese roads to the smoothly paved 
highways of today. 

In the gardens are seats in which to rest and listen to the daily 
concerts by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra of seventy pieces. 


MAYA TEMPLE. Reproduced section of the Mayan Temple, 
the Nunnery of Uxmal, in Yucatan. In its halls are relics of the 
artistic and engineering genius of the lost civilization of America. 

In the center, the wide stone staircase up to the main hall is as it 
was when the original was trodden by thousands of worshippers. 

The elaborate facade of the Uxmal Nunnery at the Exposition 
Fair is an exact reproduction in its original color of yellowish brown, 
with dark green and deep red symbolic sculptured ornaments. Prin- 
cipal element of the sculpture is the serpent mask. It is the Mayan 
representation of Kukulcan, the plumed serpent god. 



Ceremonial Dancers 

In the long hall of the temple is a life-size figure of a Mayan 
Feather Dancer. The gaudy, feathered costume is the only one of its 
kind in any museum. It was made by Indians of Xachila, state of 
Oaxaca, Mexico, after the ancient pattern used 2,000 years ago in 
dances in honor of their gods. Another life-size figure is that of a 
Jaguar Dancer in full costume. 

Figure of an Indian girl from Zacatecas is wearing the China 
Poblana, the national festal garb of Mexican women. 

Near a case of Maya pottery is a figure of a Mayan woman of 
today making pottery by hand. 

Shrunken human heads, war trophies of the Jivaro Indians, who 
still preserve their independence in the jungles of Ecuador, are a 
weird exhibit. 

Codex Tulane 

The Codex Tulane is the only complete Middle America manu- 
script in the United States. It is a strip of deerskin twelve and one- 
half feet long and nine inches wide, on which is a record in picture 
writing and hieroglyphs. 

In cases in the hall are exhibits, including ancient Maya currency. 
Brilliant feathers of the extinct quetzal bird are the highest money. 
Xext come jade beads, small copper bells and coca beans, the money 
of the common people. 


There are many jade carvings, miniature statuettes and pendants. 
Obsidian is the material of numerous figurines, household gods and 
ornaments as well as of large and small knives with curved blades, 
sharp as razors. A Mayan beauty once studied her features in a 
mirror of polished pyrite. There are finely executed miniature masks. 

Mass production is shown by clay molds from a temple storehouse. 
Clay stamps bear designs which could be rapidly printed off singly 
or in combinations. Dentistry for ornament was practised, as is 
evidenced by the skull of a rich man, his teeth inlaid with jade and 
turquoise. Tomb of a Mayan chief, built into one wall of the 
Temple, is lined with some of the finest known Mayan relief sculp- 
tures in stucco. 

Polished white marble jars, bowls and trays, thin as tea cups and

Tunkul Drums 

A small, richly carved drum, of polished red wood, has four loose 
squares in one side that produce four different notes. Similar prin- 
ciple is that of the tunkuls, or ceremonial log drums. 

A wall covered with dots and dashes like telegraph code shows 
the numerical system of the Mayas, who reckoned in twenties instead 
of in tens. Enlarged photographs show the descendants of the 
Mayas as they are today. 



GENERAL MOTORS BUILDING. The 177-foot tower domi- 
nates the building, which is 429 feet long and 306 feet wide. The 
construction is steel, concrete and steel-sheathed wall board. More 
than 1,100 piles were driven to provide the foundation. Electric 
power used in the illumination requires 92,000 horsepower per 
month, enough to pump water for a city of 25,000 inhabitants or to 
provide home and street lighting for a city of 7,500. Three times 
this amount of power is used in the operation of the exhibits. Archi- 
tect is Albert Kahn of Detroit. Construction equipment and opera- 
tion of the exhibit represent an investment of approximately 

In this building you see a complete automobile assembly line in 
full operation. Taking the automobile factory to the people and 
showing them exactly how a motor car is put together is the pur- 
pose of the show. 


The General Motors Buildini 

Automobile Assembly Line 

From a balcony a fifth of a mile long, 1,000 visitors at a time may 
watch the entire process, from the first step of the assemblage of a 
Chevrolet car until the finished car is driven off at the end under 
its own power. Constant production of cars is maintained in this 
exhibit throughout the Exposition, and the cars thus made are part 
of the regular output of General Motors. 

Two hundred white-uniformed, expert workmen are at their sep- 
arate jobs along the line. You look down on them and see the steel 
frames of the chassis starting on their journey. Cranes swing the 
wooden body framework over them and the swift workmen at that 
point, with their electrically powered screwdrivers and wrenches, 
fasten the framework together. The steel bodies are swung into 
place, welded and bolted, the joints polished mirror-smooth, and the 
job, beginning to look like a car, moves on, followed by the endless 
line of others. You see how the inside of the body is finished along 
with the wiring, the adding of the transmission and other mecha- 
nisms, the swinging of the engines into place, the car constantly 
growing, every one of the expert mechanics adding his touch, until 
the final inspection and testing of the engine. The car is run into 
the line of finished jobs to be driven away at the end of the work- 
ing day. 

It is astonishing how quietly the operations are conducted. 
Everything fits in its place. The cranes silently swing the heavy 
parts to exactly the right position and the whole job goes on with 
little noise. 


Sculptures in Hall of Progress 

In the Hall of Progress an extensive mechanical exhibit shows the 
development of a number of the automotive improvements created 
during the history of the General Motors organization. These 
include the self-starter and electric head lighting. 

The Hall of Progress is embellished by sculptures and marquetry 
mural decorations. Statues in wood by Carl Halsthammar, and the 
striking statue, "Precision Workmanship," by Carl Milles, the cele- 
brated Swedish sculptor, are notable art objects. The murals are 
by Miklos Gaspar and Matthew Faussher. 

Methods and instruments used by the scientists in the corpora- 
tion's research laboratories are shown in another exhibit room, which 
is completely air-conditioned. In this exhibit you see the fluorescent 
fountain. It is made of a large number of the rare minerals used in 
the regular work of the research staff. Ultra violet light played on 
these minerals produces a strange flow of color effects. 

Refrigeration Exhibits 

Home and commercial refrigeration and air-conditioning is the 
subject of another large exhibit. 

The work of the consumer research staff, which investigates and 
tabulates the desires of 1,500,000 American motor car owners each 
year, is explained in an extensive exhibit. 

The moving picture theatre shows a series of educational films. 

In the great semi-circle of glass-fronted exhibit rooms around the 
building are seen the many models of automobiles, deluxe bodies 
and other products of General Motors. The building is surrounded 
by a concrete terrace and landscaped gardens. On the lake-front 
side is the pier for steamer and motorboat landings. 


FRIGIDAIRE HOUSE. A small modern home demonstrating 
all-year air conditioning. The house is built to show scientific con- 
struction in insulation from heat and cold and is planned for ultra- 
modern conveniences in labor-saving and healthful conditions. How 
three essentials of life — food, air and water — are kept at proper 
temperatures for health at all seasons of the year, is demonstrated 
by automatic home equipment. 


CHRYSLER BUILDING. A huge drop-forged steam hammer, 
shaping steering knuckles from red-hot steel billets, and a quarter- 
mile outdoor exhibition and testing track and sand pit, are features 
of the animated exhibits in the Chrysler building. 

The main building is in the form of a Maltese cross with four 
pylons, 125 feet high, and an open center well. A long, elevated 

[" 142 ] 


The Chrysler Building 

promenade overlooking the track, connects this building with the 
smaller building at the north. Holabird and Root are the architects. 
Airy, outdoor effect, with comfortable chairs and settees placed 
everywhere in shady and breezy spots, carries out the inviting and 
hospitable plan of the building. 

Exhibition Track 

On the track a free exhibition of automobile driving and testing 
is given hourly under direction of Barney Oldfield, the celebrated 
racing driver, who acts as master of ceremonies, greeting the visitors 
and sometimes taking the wheel. 

In the wide, circular plaza, which runs all the way around the 
ground floor under the roof of the main building, is a varied exhibit 
of the science and art of automobile manufacture. Graphic and ani- 
mated displays show the results of research by engineers, and the 
principles involved are understandably explained. 

Automobile bodies turn wrong side out to show how they are 
made on their steel frames. 

In demonstration of actual operations you see welding operations 
performed, cloth woven, safety glass made, coil springs wound and 
shaped, paint and lacquer in process of production. 

Effect of air resistance on different shapes of cars is demonstrated 
in an exhibit that shows how engineers work out the airflow principle. 
You may make the test yourself. 

Operating exhibits farther around the circle show how tests of 
stability and stamina are applied to materials and to car design. 
The color setting and arrangement of the series of exhibits is the 
work of Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky. 

r 143 ] ' 

Moving Picture Theatre 

In the center of the circle, at the base of one of the pylons of the 
main building, is the moving picture theatre in which dramatic tests 
of cars are shown. In one of them an automobile is knocked off 
a 300- foot bluff by a truck. The car bounces and somersaults to 
the bottom and then is driven away with no apparent damage except 
dented fenders and top. 

On the second floor of this building is a fashion salon of finished 
motor cars. From here you may walk out on the promenade to look 
out over the testing track. A long pool with four spouting fountain- 
is between the two buildings. Under the promenade is a continua- 
tion of the main building exhibits.

STANDARD OIL SHOW. Free exhibition of thirty-three 
jungle-born lions and tigers and their trainer in a daring performance. 

There are 2,500 free seats in the outdoor theatre around the steel- 
barred arena, called the "Red Crown Cage of Fury." In this cage 
Allen King, one of the few trainers who have been able to control 
a large group of lions and tigers at one time, puts the savage beasts 
through their performance. 

Allen King has many 
dangerous moments in 
training full grown des- 
ert-born Barbary lions. 


First Appearance of Beasts 

A number of these animals are making, in this act, their first 
appearance as performers. Jungle born animals are said to respond to 
training more readily than do animals born in captivity. The lions are 
from Barbary and Central Africa. The tigers came from Sumatra and 
North China. Allen King has been training the lions and tigers to 
appear together all winter, at menagerie headquarters in Peru, In- 
diana. During that time he had no serious difficulty with them. 

Supporting the lion and tiger performance is an act by a herd of 
elephants, under a woman trainer, Miss Estrella Nelson. 

Four or five exhibitions are scheduled for each day. After the 
performances the public may go through the menagerie and inspect 
the beasts in their cages. 


TRANSPORTATION DOME, and the Great Hall of the Travel 
and Transport building, are two of the most original conceptions 
of the new architecture. The striking design of this gigantic build- 
ing is a reflection of the new ideas involved in its construction. 

The Dome is an architectural innovation that has been more dis- 
cussed than has any building erected in recent years. Instead of 
being supported by pillars the dome, 205 feet in diameter, is sus- 
pended from twelve trussed towers. This novel suspension construc- 
tion allows under the dome a floor space more than 200 feet across 
entirely free of obstruction. 

Suspension principle allows for expansion and contraction from 
heat and cold and this gives it the name — "the breathing dome." 
Its engineering principles have proved their soundness, the dome 
coming intact through the severe conditions of two winters on the 
lake front and bearing the load of heavy snowfalls with ease. Prin- 
ciple o f construction 
established by this 
demonstration will be 
seen in future applied 
to other buildings re- 
quiring large unob- 
structed areas under 
roof. Architects of the 
Travel and Transport 
building are J. A. Hol- 
abird, Hubert Burn- 
ham and E. H. Ben- 
nett. Clarence W. Far- 
rier was the architect 
The John Stevens f Transportation 

Dome with Leon S. Moisseiff as consulting engineer. 



History under the Dome 

Historical exhibits are arranged around the rotunda of the Dome. 
Here we see a reproduction of one of America's first locomotives, 
built by John Stevens, of Hoboken, N. J., in 1825. 
Next in the circle is a U. S. Navy fighting seaplane. 
A weather-bleached Conestoga covered wagon leads a procession 
of three ancient vehicles. The Conestoga is not the '"prairie schoon- 
er" of the western trek but is the older, heavy wagon that carried 
emigrants west from the Atlantic Coast. Behind the Conestoga is 
a bullet-scarred Rocky Mountain stage coach, built in 1860. The 
line is brought up by a tottering old two-seat automobile surrey of 
1907. A spidery, high-wheel bicycle of the eighties is followed by 
a four-rider "safety bicycle," the thrilling racing machine of the 

A modern, steel-bodied, two-unit transportation truck is contrasted 

with a power wagon 
built in 1907. A pio- 
neer power tractor of 
1906 is beside a mod- 
ern, compact, rubber- 
tired tractor. In this 
exhibit you see a pio- 
neer buggy-type auto- 
mobile of the '90's 
with its steering lever 

and bicvcle chains. 
The Transcontinental Plane 

A modern motor fire truck is contrasted with one of the first steam 
fire engines. 

Pilot house of a modern steamship, exhibited by the U. S. Depart- 
ment of Commerce, shows the use of standard and gyro compass, 
engine room telegraphs, radio direction finder and the "fathometer" 
which takes soundings by echo from the sea bottom. 

You may go through one of the world's swiftest, multi-motored, 
all-metal planes. The ship's speed is 200 miles per hour. Its capac- 
ity is ten passengers, crew of three and 800 pounds of mail and 
express. The cabin has thermostatically controlled vapor heating, 
reclining chairs for night travel and a lunch sideboard. 

New type of city transportation is shown in a motor bus street 
car with doors at both ends. 

The world's mightiest electric locomotive stands nearby in the 
Dome. The giant is 76 feet long, 17 feet 4 inches high, and weighs 
521,000 pounds.

All-Aluminum Sleeping Cars 

The first two all-aluminum sleeping and observation cars ever 
built stand imposingly at the entrance to the great hall. End of 
the observation car is a stream-lined turtle-back. 

Between the two aluminum giants stands a small, weather worn 
brown wooden sleeping car, which made its first trip Sept. 1, 1859, 
from Bloomington, Illinois, to Chicago. There are no lower berths. 
Wood bunks are let down above the tops of the low seats. 

Near these cars is a large floor exhibit of up-to-date sleeping car 
bedrooms, compartments, staterooms and berths. 

At the north end of the great hall, a relief map of Glacier National 
Park and its surroundings shows Yellowstone Lake in its lofty basin. 

Antique "six shooters," armory of the pony express riders of Cali- 
fornia gold rush days, are among railway express exhibits. An 
armored automobile truck, with its loop-holes and arsenal of mod- 
ern weapons, is an example of the motorized traveling fortresses that 
transport money in cities. 

Historic Dioramas 

An acting diorama reproduces the laying of the first stone in a 
railroad system a hundred years ago. Figures almost life-size in 
beaver hats, stocks and ruffled shirts, move and speak in the scene. 

Other dioramas are views of Harper's Ferry and of historic scenes 
in railroad history, one of which, on a stage with moving runways, 
shows the race in 1829 between Peter Cooper's engine, the "Tom 
Thumb," and a horse car. 

A line of operating miniature models represents the development 
of the locomotive. At the end is the original "Atlantic" locomotive, 
date 1832, in operation. 

Moving trains and steamboats are in a diorama of the view across 
the Hudson River to the headland Storm King. An historic display 
of model vehicles is in this exhibit. 

A twenty-two foot illuminated relief map, showing national and 
international trade routes, is in a great exhibit which includes the 
"Mississippi," the South's oldest locomotive, date 1834. 

Pioneer Railroading 

The "Pioneer," first locomotive to run out of Chicago, in contrast 
with a profile of the largest type of passenger locomotive in the 
world, shows the "Pioneer" no longer than the tender of its successor. 

Here you will see a pioneer train. The small, plain, wooden cars, 
rough seats and open platforms give a picture of early days of rail- 
roading in America. 

You may step into a full-size locomotive cab and examine the 
controls. Sections of roadbed and specimens of track, ties and 
ballast are in this space. 


Entrance to Transportation Dome at Night 

Motion pictures in 
another exhibit tell the 
inside workings of a 
railroad system and a 
talking motion picture 
in full color shows and 
describes stretches of 
the Rocky Mountains.

Largest automobile ever built, 80 feet long and 39 feet high, is a 
motion picture theatre in which films are shown telling a story of 
motor car manufacturing. 

Safety glass is demonstrated by a screen-enclosed tunnel through 
which visitors are invited to throw baseballs at glass panels. 

Expert workmen in a complete factory unit make safety glass 
sheets, and transparencies show all the steps in the process of glass 

Motorcycles, featuring a new police model, are shown. 

Bicycle manufacturers exhibit an historical collection of bicycles. 
The earliest example is a "hobby-horse," which the rider straddled 
and kicked along with his feet on the ground.

A New Unit Train 

An historical exhibit 
of car couplings illus- 
trates the development 
from plain bar fasten- 
ings to massive auto- 
matic couplers. Types 
of rail joints, anti- 
creepers, and rail flange 
lubrication are exhib- 
ited. Annular and 
thrust bearings are ex- 
hibited with a display 
of the precision instru- 
ments used in making 
ball bearings. 

A four-track toy 
train electric system is 
built to scale in minia- 

Amateur Radio 
The World's Fair Radio Amateur Council has its exhibit space 
and operating station on this floor. A radio-controlled boat is oper- 
ated on the lagoon by remote control, operators on shore starting, 
stopping and maneuvering the boat. 

Three short-wave transmitters are in operation. Any licensed 
radio transmitting amateur visiting the Fair may operate the trans- 
mitters if he has his license with him. It is unlawful for a person 
to operate an amateur station unless he has his license on his person. 

In the exhibit is a full-size, old-time "spark station" which will 
show how amateurs sent and received signals in the early days. 

Sportsman's Show 

The International Motor Boat and Sportsman's Exposition occu- 
pies a large section of the second floor. In a forest setting is an 
exhibition of wild life. Bait-casting and fly-casting contests are 
scheduled. Archery contests are an added attraction. Motorboats, 
outboard motor equipment, canoes and hunting equipment are on 
display in a great sportsman's show. 


An epoch-making exhibit, revealing the swift advancement and 
evolution of transport in the past 100 years, is on the out-of-doors 
exhibition tracks south of the Travel and Transport building. Here

Tuo Types 

of Modern 



are two of the new streamlined, motor driven trains that have been 
put into service in the past few months. 

One of these is a six-car, streamlined, 110-mile-an-hour Diesel 
driven train. 

What the development of such a train means to the world of trans- 
portation is shown by the following contrasting facts: 

A standard steam train of six cars weighs about 600 tons; the new 
six-car unit, 85 tons. A standard, high-speed passenger locomotive 
weighs 312 tons; the new type power unit, 20 tons. 

The average modern locomotive has to be refueled every 100 
miles; the new train, every 1,200 miles. The new train, too, oper- 
ates on roller bearings throughout. 

The train is air-conditioned throughout; temperature controlled 
by thermostat. Interior color scheme is blue and aluminum. All 
lighting is indirect. 

A Three-Car Unit 

Nearby is another new streamlined, Diesel-powered train, a three- 
car unit. This unit train is built of stainless steel. It weighs only 
80 tons, no more than a single standard sleeping car. It rides on 
articulated trucks with roller bearings. It is air-conditioned, radio 
equipped, has windows of shatterproof glass and electro-pneumatic 
brakes. Rear of the last car is an observation solarium.

Three other streamlined rail car jobs, single coaches, Diesel and 
gas-motored, are shown in this group. 

A museum piece, an ancient locomotive of 182 7, is shown beside 
a modern, high-speed locomotive. 

Another historical exhibit shows the evolution of the railway coach 
from 1830 to the present. The newest train is equipped with "4-way 
conditioning," which includes humidifying, dehumidifying, air cool- 
ing and warming. 


fWINGS OF A CENTURY. Pageant drama, depicting the crea- 
tion and development of the transportation system of the United 
States. An army of actors and horses, and the largest collection of 
actual historic vehicles ever brought together and shown in action 
under their own power, are used in the action. 

Trappers and hunters, risking their scalps by penetrating into 
the wilderness where white men have never been, begin the action. 
Indian fights, Daniel Boone and his followers attacked in their 
camp, the "covered wagons" crossing the plains, cowboys, stage- 
robbers, the gold hunters in California, the Sacramento water-front, 
miners, gamblers and dance hall girls, make scenes of fast action. 

Mutinous drunken sailors fight with their officers and police when 
a clipper ship docks in the East. Queer old post chaises, early stage 
coaches, "hobby horses," canal-boat days, race between a horse car 
a pioneer American locomotive, and humorous travel episodes show 
the beginning of railway traffic. 

Ante-Bellum Days 

Old Mississippi days are shown in a levee scene. A steamboat, 
with its load of ladies in crinoline, planters and river gamblers, docks 
at the levee during a Mardi-gras festival. Negro roustabouts, field 
hands and levee loungers sing spirituals to the masked revellers. 

Transportation advances in spite of everything. Dramatic mo- 
ment shows the "driving of the golden spike" at the joining of the 
transcontinental tracks. 

First Automobiles 

Appearance of the first automobiles at the World's Fair of 1893, 
the Spanish princess at the Columbian Exposition, flaunting cos- 
tumes of the "gay nineties," introduce a fascinating procession of 
historic first automobiles. There is a tense thrill at the first airplane 
flight by Wilbur Wright at Kittyhawk, North Carolina. Conclusion is 
an impressive moving scene of huge, modern locomotives, giant motor 



trucks, automobiles and a great, 
all-metal, transcontinental air- 

"Wings of a Century" was 
acclaimed at the Exposition of 
1933 as an historic pageant of 
the most intense dramatic and

An exhibit area of prime interest to farmers has been organized 
south of the transportation group. In the Travel and Transport build- 
ing near the central entrance to the Great Hall is a large lounge and 
meeting place for farmers' headquarters. Addresses will be given here 
under the auspices of the Agricultural Council of the Chicago Asso- 
ciation of Commerce. 



In the Farm Area are found a series of exhibits of practical interest. 
Collateral with them are the exhibits of farm machinery, production 
and distribution in the Agricultural and Foods Building and the 
interesting exhibits of farm industries in the Ford Building. 

So much attention has been directed toward the economic and 
attractive possibilities of country living that the modern farm and 
country-life homes built as exhibits for the Exposition of 1934 are 
of timely interest. 


MODEL FARM HOUSE shows the new ideas of comfort and 
efficiency applied to the home of a practical farm operator. The 
living quarters of the family are private and separate from the daily 
work contacts of the farm. The garage, dairy machines room, work- 
bench and repair room, wash room for the assistants, and other 
working spaces are on the ground floor of the house. 

The private family quarters on the second floor include a large 
living room with fireplace, expansible dining space, kitchen, three 
bedrooms and bath. The furnishing and decoration are in the 
modern style, according to a simple plan of moderate cost. 

Construction of the home is planned to be such that it may be 
built with materials available at the site. Novelties consist in fire- 
safe construction, insulation and economies in making use of pre- 
fabricated materials and units as far as possible. 


"FLIVVER" HOUSE. While this model home for the farm or 
town is not entitled a "subsistence house," it fits into that picture 
of a scientific modern dwelling of small cost that may be placed 
wherever desired. 

The plan includes living-room, two bedrooms, nursery, kitchen 
and bath. There is a large, open-air porch. Flat roof deck provides 
additional recreation space. 

Construction is frameless, with sheet steel panels, twenty-four 
inches wide, house high, and stiffened by a three-inch steel web. The 
floors and roof are built of panels twelve inches wide and braced 
by five-inch steel web. The thickness is filled up with spun-glass 
insulation. Interior finish is decorated insulation board. Roof is of 
the built-up asphalt type.

an airplane hangar, according to the newest European type of barn 
construction. Visitors look at the cows through plate glass parti- 
tions in order not to disturb the animals, which are milked hourly 
by machines. Cows' diet includes irradiated yeast for the produc- 
tion of "Vitamin D Milk." 

Dairy building is of hollow glass building blocks, resistant to 
temperature changes and admitting light. Model milk storing,

range of galleries of the Art Institute of Chicago, in Grant Park, a 
short distance from the North Entrance of the Exposition. The 
immense value of the irreplaceable old and modern works in the Art 
Exhibition requires that they be housed in a permanent building like 
the granite Art Institute. The Art Exhibition is open daily, June 1 
to November 1, from 9 a. m. to 5:30 p. m. Sundays, 12 noon to 
9 p. m. 

More than 1 ,000 masterpieces of painting and sculpture are in the 
exhibition. The loan exhibition is entirely different from last year's 
exhibition and comprises many famous works that have never before 
been publicly shown. The exhibition occupies the entire gallery 
floor of the Art Institute in 43 galleries of exhibitions of old and 
modern masters and to one-man shows. 

American Art Stressed 

The comprehensive loan exhibition of works of American masters 
is an artistic event long awaited and finally achieved in the World's 
Fair Exhibition.

Paul Revere's Ride, by Grant Wood 
I 160 ] 

Early period, from 1705 to 1860, is represented by examples of 
the best works of Stuart, Sully, Trumbull, West, Copley, Earl, 
Harding, Savage, Waldo, Feke, Morse, Hesselius and others. 

Epoch of the Eastern painters is shown by Homer, Inness, Blake- 
lock, Ryder, Fuller, Eakins, Sargent and Whistler. 

Later comes the period of Chase, Duveneck, Carlsen, Cassatt, 
Twachtman, Weir, Davies, Melchers, Hawthorne, Henri, Bellows and 
Luks, and finally the American artists of today. Separate galleries 
are given to one-man shows of Whistler, Sargent, Weir, Eakins, 
Ryder, Cassatt, Henri, Bellows and Luks. 

Two of W T histler's symphonies in white, "White Lady" and 
""White Girl," and "The Lange Leisen," are among his paintings. 
Among the old masters are a portrait by Antonello da Messina 
and a "Repentant Magdalen" by Veronese. A self-portrait by Sir 
Joshua Reynolds and "Portrait of Mrs. Butler," by Hogarth, are 
in the 18th century British rooms. 

Etchings, Engravings, Lithographs and Woodblock Prints 

Twenty-one countries, with America leading all the others, are 
represented in the World's Fair International Exhibition of Etchings, 
Engravings, Lithographs and Woodblock Prints. There are 412 
master works in this collection. One room will be given exclusively 
to prints by James McNeill Whistler.

THE outstanding fact about the World's Fair in Chicago is that 
it is the work of a voluntary association of citizens representing 
the entire United States. The only tax-paid money used in the Ex- 
position is in the United States 
Government's individual exhibit 
and in those of the different 
states exhibiting. 

After several years of pro- 
posals and discussions, the 
exposition was organized in 
December, 1927, as an Illinois 
corporation, not for profit. 
Early expenses were met from 
membership fees of founder 
and sustaining members. The 
World's Fair Legion, composed 
largely of Chicago citizens, pur- 
chased more than $ 600,000 worth 
of tickets several years in ad- 
vance of the opening. A bond 
issue of $10,000,000, supple- 
mented by purchase of space by 
exhibitors and concessionaires, 
furnished the funds necessary 
Rujus C. Dawes in the pre-fair period. 

More than 22,500,000 visitors experienced the mental stimulus 
and inspiration of the Exposition in its first year. In consequence, 
came the general demand that this immense assemblage of educa- 
tional material, some of it price- 
less in ordinary terms, some of 
it the result of five years' study 
and labor in planning and or- 
ganization, be not scattered 
after a mere five months' ex- 
position to those hungry for 
knowledge. This general de- 
mand from the public's leaders 
and spokesmen had the power- 
ful endorsement of the Presi- 
dent of the United States. 

New exhibitors in 1934 in- 
clude leading corporations of 
America. The benefits of exten- 
sive re-mapping of the grounds 
and many improvements in 
operation are seen. The gener- 
ally increased optimism and 

Lenox R. Lohr 

energy of the entire country are reflected in the new and greater 
Exposition of 1934, which opens its gates with more than half its 
bonded indebtedness paid.

Quick Dissolving 
Property of 


Starts Relief 3 or 4 Minutes After Taking 

Due to important, scientific de- 
velopments in the world-famous 
Bayer laboratories, almost IN- 
STANT relief from headaches, 
neuralgia and rheumatic pains is 
being afforded millions. 

Because of a unique process in 
making and tableting, Genuine 
Baver Aspirin is made to dissolve 
almost INSTANTLY in the stom- 
ach. Hence it starts to work almost 
instantly. And thus "takes hold" of 
the average pain or headache in as 
little as three or four minutes after 
taking. The fastest, safe relief, it is 
said, ever known for pain. 

Remember, it is Genuine Bayer 
Aspirin which provides this unique, 
quick-acting property. So be sure 
you get the Real Article — GEN- 
UINE BAYER Aspirin when you 
buy. Naturally you want the fast- 
est, possible relief — and that's the 
way to get it. 

To identify the genuine, see that 
any box or bottle of aspirin you buy 
is marked "Genuine Bayer Aspirin." 
And that any tablet you take is 
stamped clearly with the name 
"Bayer" in the form of a cross. 
Remember — Genuine Bayer Aspirin 
does not harm the heart.

I try, in Jackson Park, is devoted to 
exhibits of discoveries and inventions 
and the application of science to in- 
dustry. A number of the exhibits at 
the World's Fair will be transferred to 
be permanent exhibits in the museum. 
The Field Museum of Natural His- 
tory is specially prominent for its collections in North American ethnology, 
world mineralogy and economic bot- 
any. Its series of mounted mammals 
is an example of advanced museum 
methods. The Museum constantly 
maintains from 12 to 16 scientific ex- 
ploring expeditions in various parts 
of the world. 

The Shedd Aquarium, just outside 
the North Entrance to the Exposition, Shedd Aquarium

Nine Chances in Ten It's "Ac/c/ Stomach' 
How You Can Easily Correct It 

Almost Instant Relief This Way 

TAKE — 2 teaspoonfuls of 
Phillips' Milk of Magnesia 
in a glass of water every 
morning when you get up. 
Take another teaspoonful 
thirty minutes after eating. 
And another before you go 
to bed. 

According to many authorities, a 
great number of people today have 
acid stomach. This because so 
many foods, comprising the modern 
diet, are acid forming foods. 

It usually makes itself felt in 
headaches, nausea, "gas," "bilious- 
ness," and most frequently in 
stomach pains that come about 
thirty minutes after eating. So you 
can easily tell if you have it. 

Noiv Quickly and 
Easily Corrected 

If you do have acid stomach, dori t 
worry about it. You can correct it 
in a very simple manner. Just do 
this; it will alkalize your acid 
soaked stomach almost immediate- 
ly and you will feel like another 

TAKE— 2 teaspoonfuls of Phil- 
lips' Milk of Magnesia with a glass 
of water every morning when you 
get up. Take another teaspoonful 
thirty minutes after eating. And 
another before you go to bed. 

What This Does 

That's all you do. But you do it 


regularly, EVERY DAY, so long 
as you have any symptoms of dis- 

This acts to neutralize the stom- 
ach acids that foster your "upset" 
stomach, that invite headaches and 
that feeling of lassitude and lost 

Try it. Results will amaze you. 
Your head will be clear. You'll for- 
get you have a stomach. 

BUT — be careful that you get 
REAL milk of magnesia when you 
buy: genuine PHILLIPS' Milk of 
Magnesia. See that the name 
"Phillips" is stamped clearly on the 


Phillips' Milk of Mag- 
nesia Tablets are now 
on sale at drug stores 
everywhere. Each tiny 
tablet is the equivalent 
of a teaspoonful of 
Genuine Phillips' Milk 
of Magnesia.
